Presenting ... Cousin Silas and Friends | iv
Before you are 45 tracks from Cousin Silas and his friends. This is the fourth such compilation and it is, by far, the largest.
Rather than single any one track out for praise, I will say this: how can you measure such creativity? Can you even attempt to do so using minutes or megabytes alone as your evidence? It is impossible.
What Cousin Silas has done here by not only creating the initial music but by seeking out and bringing together his friends so they can aid him in creating their respective pieces is nothing short of remarkable.
In fact, it is inconceivable, as Vizzini would say.
But here’s the thing … this is the kind of creativity that lives, breathes and makes things happen on the edges of culture. I am proud of all I have achieved with my netlabel, weareallghosts. I am proud to give a home to the creativity that oozes out of this recording.
On the 14th July, 2015; we will celebrate with friends and fans across the world the first Netlabel Day. Unfortunately I will be sunning myself just north of Venice in Italy and will not be able to contribute on the day. So consider Silas & Friends vol. iv to be my early gift.
Please do all you can now and on the 14th July to support netlabels, your ongoing support is vital to ensure this movement can flourish.
A 320kbps version of this release is available over on Archive for free with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’ which does include ‘free’. If you decide to download this album here for free, and you can with our best wishes, then all we ask is that you please tell people about it.
