Presenting ... Twang 001 by Cousin Silas
As promised, albeit slightly later that I had initially envisaged, I present the first Twang! from Cousin Silas.
I am proud to rerelease this selection of one-take guitar improvs on weareallghosts, proud and happy to bring these tracks back for your listening pleasure. I was not alone in expressing my displeasure when the Twang! series disappeared from view, but I am delighted to work with Cousin Silas to bring them back ... along with a couple of bonus tracks.
No edits. No overdubs. Just one man and his extensive collection of guitars ... pushing the boundaries of atmospheric sound.
Ambient purists beware ... there are beats on some of the tracks within Twang One ... but please don't be put off, these are most definitely Cousin Silas tracks: fluid, languid, unhurried ... and yet weird, dissonant, dramatic ... the kind of music that sits as nicely at the back of the room as it does front and centre ... the kind of music that doesn't demand your attention but it does deserve it!
As before, my thanks goes to Cousin Silas, Kevin Lyons & Tim Jones, and to Warren Daly … Adrian Nicholls ... Drew Miller ... and the wonderful waag community ... for their generous support.
A 320kbps version of this release will be available, for free, over on Archive with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.
