Christopher Willits–multi-instrumentalist, producer, and XLR8RTVstar–will take a break from making music to hit several cities in the U.S. and Canada with drone-ambient duo Stars of the Lid. The 19-date tour, which begins today in Los Angeles, will see Willits performing his solo work alongside videos created from his own photography, while Stars of the Lid has enlisted a string trio to accompany its songs.

In other Willits news, Ghostly recently re-issued his 2004 track “Breath (in seven sections)” on RCRD LBL, which is quickly taking over the world. Grab it here.
