Stars of the Lid MP3

Given the piece’s thick, nearly rumbling organ tones and its regal atmosphere, a listen to “Apreludes (In C Sharp Major)” (MP3) by Stars of the Lid may summon up images of 2001: A Space Odyssey, but the monolith on the horizon is not a gargantuan slab of black granite. It’s a three-LP/two-CD album titled And Their Refinement of the Decline, the Austin, Texas-based duo’s first full-length recording since, well, 2001. Due out in April on Kranky Records.
