3AM Eternal: Stars Of The Lid Live In San Francisco (2008)

Experimental duo Stars of the Lid began in the early 1990s, hailing from the then-fertile Austin experimental scene. Signing to Kranky, they began life as a powerful drone band, and over the years, they’ve refined their sound into a beautiful neoclassical sound that incorporates those early elements while turning in music that sounds positively timeless. 4AD founder Ivo Watts-Russell loves them, and for good reason; they expand wonderfully on the instrumental passages of his This Mortal Coil project. This live show, from 2008, finds them offering up a beautiful performance.
