The wait is over... introducing "the devil came to me" by Rebekkah's Cousin Silas
For our sophomore release on weareallghosts, we have something very special indeed... a collaboration between spoken word poet and soprano Rebekkah Hilgraves and ambient musician and weareallghosts collaborator Cousin Silas... Rebekkah's Cousin Silas.
Released simultaneously on bandcamp.com (.wav, .flac and lower) and archive.org (320kbps or ogg)... "the devil came to me" is in four parts:
(1) an initial longform piece entitled "Rachel (above adversity)" that sets the scene for the whole release...
(2) "the Rachel suite" - 15 tracks with similar themes of defiance... of being in the presence of evil and of overcoming... the journey into the heart of darkness and surviving to tell the tale.
(3) + (4) two separate tracks that each have their own stories to tell - "devil in the details" and "a gig is a gig".
This is a collaboration that was and is meant to be... and one I am proud to have on weareallghosts.
Have a wee listen below and download it from either bandcamp.com or archive.org. To save free download tokens... if you are after 320kbps then please use archive.org - you can use *this link* to download directly from there.
My thanks to Rebekkah Hilgreaves and Cousin Silas for entrusting this album to this wee netlabel... and to you all... our listeners... for listening and sharing our music so passionately. It is appreciated!
