Presenting ... the re-release of Cousin Silas' Owlers Wood on weareallghosts
“Owlers Wood” is one of my favourite longform ambient electronic pieces from Cousin Silas. It was released on the now sadly defunct netlabel Unsheep and has been unfairly languishing in obscurity until now … both Cousin Silas and I have fond memories of the piece and neither of us wanted to see the piece disappear so the decision was taken to re-release it on weareallghosts.
It is an amazing piece, almost 80 minutes in length yet totally engaging. It is delicate and thoughtful, reminiscent (to me at least) of Brian Eno’s "Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks"; with sparing use of guitar and other miscellaneous flourishes.
As before … a 320kbps version of this release will be available to download 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.
“Owlers Wood” will also be available on Soundcloud, if you wish to stream it there.
