Presenting ... ScannerWorks (waag_rel054) by Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons
A collaboration between two of my favourite musicians on weareallghosts - Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons - is an exciting prospect, one that I am glad to say did not disappoint me. I love their individual sounds and really love their combined effort on "ScannerWorks (waag_rel054)".
"ScannerWorks (waag_rel054)" is the first of hopefully many collaborations between Silas and Lyons ... they have distilled their shared passion for ambient and progressive music, 70s British horror films, and pulp sci-fi novels into 13 distinctive and very 'out there' atmospheric soundscapes.
"ScannerWorks (waag_rel054)" is food for the imagination, sound cues for the theatre of the mind. I can think of no greater recommendation than to listen to this album with a good set of headphones and let your mind wander. Give yourself permission to dream.
An MP3 version of this album is available for free on Archive or a lossless version available on Bandcamp for 'pay what you want' which does include £0.
We are currently finalising the physical Cousin Silas release - "The Sound Of Silas". The tracks have been mastered and the cover art finalised ... all will be revealed in due course but, for now, any funds raised by "ScannerWorks (waag_rel054)" will go towards this and possibly some extras.
If you do decide to download this album for free then all we ask in return is that you tell your friends, tweet a link or post it on Facebook, write a review and spread the word.
We will post more information regarding the physical release in due course but for now ... dream big and enjoy "ScannerWorks (waag_rel054)".
My thanks to Andreas Schwietzke (www.facebook.com/andreas.schwietzke) for the wonderful illustration that accompanies this release. His work fits hand-in-glove with the music Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons.
