Presenting ... "Emporium Sampler (waag_EMP001)" by Cousin Silas

One of my main motivations, when I first talked about setting up weareallghosts, was to bring all the music of Cousin Silas under one roof or, at the very least, give a home to a good, sizeable chunk of it ... I felt Silas deserved some stability.

All these years later and Cousin Silas is finally bringing all his music, well most of his music, under one roof: his own. And, in doing so, remastering then rereleasing some of his seminal works with additional bonus tracks to enjoy.

The reasons for him doing so are varied: we've lost Candy and the future of her netlabel is uncertain ... there is also the desire to refresh the work (with my other hat on, I've been involved ... creating new album covers and seeking to build a unique visual identity for him) ... and a real desire to bring all his albums back together, all bar the ones on waag.

As such, the "Emporium Sampler" is quite simply that: a sampler of the music on Cousin Silas' netlabel ... it is an introduction to his non-waag music in the off-chance that you may not have heard it before now and wish to expand your collection.

I hope you enjoy the music on offer and take some time to explore the music Cousin Silas' has to offer over on his Bandcamp page:

This album will not be available on Archive.
