Stars of the Lid
So one of my favorite groups to chill out and do homework to are post-rock minimalists, Stars of the Lid. They take a sound that I can relate to as a mix of Boards of Canada, The Album Leaf and maybe a pinch of Sigur Ros. Coincidentally, they're from Austin which is my favorite music scene next to Brooklyn. Stars' music is a landscape of droning sounds, effects-treated guitars and an assortment of other instruments that create a dynamic and beautiful arrangement. Since their conception in 1993, the duo has released seven albums including a live CD and two split releases. Their latest release will turn a year old on April 7, but I say dig deeper into their catalog. This is a band that should not be overlooked.
