Announcing... waag_rel005 aka "Unhinged Constellations" by Cousin Silas
I can't believe my little little netlabel is now on it's fifth release... and what a release it is. To be honest, I've been sitting on this for a wee while... after receiving it from Cousin Silas around the time 'waag_rel001' was released. I wanted to give that release time to become... and wanted this release to stand on it's own.
Personally, I can't get enough of Cousin Silas' current sound... there is something timeless and otherworldly about the soundscapes he creates with his guitars, piano and synths. Whilst his use of vocal samples demonstrates a welcome progression from his work on 'waag_rel002' with Rebekkah Hilgraves... they help to create eerie moments reminiscent of his earlier 'Ballardian' work.
I am humbled to work with Cousin Silas and consider this album to be the best birthday present... given to me far too early... but one I am proud to share with you all.
The album is available for free (320kbps) over on Archive.org and as 'pay what you want' (Lossless) over on Bandcamp.com. I have embedded the player below to let you hear it.
