The Stargazer Lilies only depart slightly from the shimmering landscape they constructed in their debut album, We Are the Dreamers. Door To The Sun takes a darker, noisier take on their shoegaze–psych rock hybrid. John Cep and Kim Field disbanded their notably more pop-driven project, Soundpool, and have focused a drenching of shoegazing tendencies here in this project. Door To The Sun brings to mind the likes of Slowdive, but with all melodic qualities cut out, leaving only the bare melancholic, soaring and fading effects, which lend all substance to the work. And while some modern shoegaze bands put forth blasting energy and volume, The Stargazer Lilies deal more in the sedate qualities of the genre. Mixing would-be heavy riffs with barely-there whispery vocals and layering it all under a heavy cloth of neutralizing production, they produce a sound that is foggy, like a half-remembered dream. Overall, Door To The Sun is a douse of droning, reverb-laden goodness for anyone who wants to take a step back from the fast-paced, complicated world. If you want to slow it down, this album might be for you.
