Presenting ... Dronescape 039 (waag_drs039) by Cousin Silas
It has been a while since dronescape 038 and in that time waag has released a number of different flavours of our favourite Cousin's ambient music: remixed, one-take guitar-orientated, dub, progressive, and atmospheric; and whilst I love all that he releases, I do have a soft spot for his dronescapes.
There is something about Cousin Silas' longform ambient music that sucks me in and envelops me like a warm Pendleton blanket, comforting me and relaxing me, stilling my busy head and helping me to concentrate; it's hard to describe how much I benefit from these pieces suffice to say they are a delight to me.
Dronescape 039 follows in the tradition Cousin Silas has created: it is a wonderfully atmospheric piece with various textures of sound that interact with each other in the most fascinating of ways ... the tinkle of a piano or the flourish of a synth arrive exactly when they should, breaking up the drone and keeping my interest piqued. I wait, with mounting anticipation, for the next wee moment of brilliance.
And brilliance it is ... this isn't just a longform drone but a piece of the most fascinating ambient expressionism, a piece to be delighted in rather than endured, a piece that will stay with you for a long time to come.
I really do hope you enjoy this dronescape as much as have and will ... here's to the next one!
As before, it is important to note that weareallghosts is funded through the money we receive for albums and dronescapes such as this. For us to realistically continue to put out this level of quality in the quantity that we need to levy a small charge for our releases. Please help out by buying the dronescape.
That said, if you aren’t able to then please note a 320kbps version of this release will be available in the next couple of days over on Archive (archive.org/details/we-are-all-ghosts) for free.
