Video: Stars of the Lid “Apreludes (in C major)”
The guys at Kranky knew what they were doing when they announced Stars of the Lid’s (annoyingly named) Stars of the Lid and Their Refinement of the Decline as the label’s 100th release. The band’s first album in five years is a 2-disc collage of thick layers of pretty drone and cinematic pads that are so lush, most ambient producers will have trouble looking in the mirror. Directed by Luke Savisky, “Apreludes (in C major)” is a trippy, 16mm video, and an incessantly moving portrait of a forest that is as beautiful as it is minimal.
