Stars Of The Lid's album Gravitational Pull Vs. The Desire For An Aquatic Life. Available here on LP and CD.

Coming quickly on the heels of their debut was Gravitational Pull vs. The Desire For An Aquatic Life, released one year later. This is a transitional release that travels from the scruffiness of the debut’s ambiance to more extended and subtle undulating tides of assembled sound, yet still dominated by processed guitars as the primary sound source. It also serves as an omen to the mini-orchestral works to come, beginning with the Avec Laudenum album a few years later. This is a small masterpiece.

LP - Standard LP.

CD - Standard CD.
