Presenting ... Cousin Silas (waag_rel106)

Cousin Silas' music is a familiar constant in my life. His albums hold a place in my heart along with my favourite books and films; and yet I still get excited when I receive an album from him, eagerly awaiting what new direction he has taken or sound he has returned to.

Cousin Silas (waag_rel106) is a fabulous return to the ambient soundscapes of his early weareallghosts releases ... there is something of "The Path Between The Trees (waag_rel001)" in this self-titled release ... a wee sprinkling of magic that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.

This is Cousin Silas' 185th release (not all with weareallghosts, may I add) and it is great to hear the magic is still there, vibrant and pregnant with possibility.

Thanks to the generous support of folks like Cousin Silas ... Warren Daly … Kevin Lyons ... Adrian Nicholls ... Drew Miller ... and the wonderful waag community ... I’m proud to be able to offer a 320kbps version of this release for free over on Archive with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.

I really hope you enjoy the latest release from Cousin Silas as much as I have. He's still got it and I just know you'll agree!
