Stars of the Lid interview?

Post by smalldrums » Fri Oct 23, 2009 8:25 am

I would love to see a Stars of the Lid interview in Tape Op. Anyone else second this? I have never seen an interview with them discussing their method to recording, gear used, etc.

yes yes yes, that would be awesome. I'd love to submit some possible questions if this happens.

I've only heard a bit of their stuff but I was very impressed.

Unlike some "ambient" artists they leave a lot of space in their music and have the patience to let individual sounds breathe & develop.

Some other Kranky acts that I'd like to see interviewed as well:

Benoit Pioulard (he happens to be based in Portland... Larry?) His album Precis was recorded using all cheap gear and sounds great, IMHO.

Labradford. This could also allow the opportunity to interview member Mark Nelson about his project Pan American, which is also excellent.

Jessica Bailiff. She records mostly at home, and makes beautiful records. Hour of the Trace might be my favorite, which was recorded by Low's Alan Sparhawk.

Bowery Electric. Might be a little late for this, as I don't think they've really been together for quite awhile. Beat is a really cool home-recorded record.

I have "The tired sounds of the stars of the lid" on my iPod. Anytime I go for a walk, that's what I listen to. Perfect time for a weird, nostalgic transformation.

I'd love to see/read an interview.
