Presenting ... 11 Tales of Space and Intrigue (waag_rel135) by Cousin Silas & Kevin Lyons

Cousin Silas and Kevin Lyons make the spookiest of sci-fi inspired ambient music and "11 Tales of Space and Intrigue (waag_rel135)" is a superb addition to their body of work.

Theirs are the sounds of abandoned space-stations and far-off moons and the imagined goings-on of the extra-terrestrial stars of loved children's TV shows ... their evocative music is the music that feeds the imagination and inspires daydreams of burning worlds and the most captivating of deserts on the Red Planet.

I, for one, am a huge fan and love nothing more than to sit back with my headphones on, basking in these soundscapes.

I am delighted to see their ongoing partnership with artist, Andreas Schwietzke, continues unabated. As I have said before, his art so effectively catches the gist of what they are saying with their music. Once more, our thanks go to Andreas for the permission to use his wonderful work.

A 320kbps version of this release will be available, for free, over on Archive with a lossless version available here on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.
