Stars of the Lid

Stars of the Lid is a duo specializing in drone-based ambient music. They list among their influencesminimalist and electroniccomposers such as Arvo Pärt, Zbigniew Preisner, Gavin Bryars, and HenrykGórecki, as well as Talk Talk, post-rock artistsLabradford, and ambient innovator Brian Eno. Theirsongs are largely beatless soundscapes, composed of droning, effects-treated guitars along with piano,strings, and horns; volume swells and feedback fill the gap of rhythmic instruments, providingdynamicmovement within the songs.
