I’d heard this name a few years ago and finally followed up on checking these guys out a few months ago. Simple, lush, long tones, minimalism…folks call it ambient. My favorites: The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid (2001) and …and Their Refinement of the Decline (2007).
Suddenly, these guys are on tour. I didn’t know they’re the next big thing.
A show in Brooklyn – with the Wordless Music Orchestra at the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn, December 17, 2013 – recorded by WXQR for their streaming only radio station Q2.
I’m looking forward to a new 2014 album.
