Presenting ... "Twang 002 (waag_rrl008)" by Cousin Silas
Here we go again with another selection of one-take guitar improvs on weareallghosts from Cousin Silas ... along with a couple of bonus tracks.
As before: no edits ... no overdubs. Just one man and his extensive collection of guitars ... pushing the boundaries of atmospheric sound.
Twang Two ... or Twang! Too ... or waag_rrl008 ... however you want to call it deserves another listen. It didn't deserve to be abandoned as it was and I, for one, am glad to give it a home on waag, albeit slightly later than initial envisaged back at the start of the year.
This is the Silas I utterly adore, the atmospheric Silas who provides the soundtrack to my Ballardian daydreams and my Lovecraftian nightmares. The soundscapes presented on this second Twang! collection are entrancing and utterly enthralling, moments of exceptional otherness that transcend the everyday.
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 is available, for free, over on Archive with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.
