Presenting ... Dronescape 047 (waag_drs047) by Cousin Silas

On the second of January this year, I took an overnight coach from Glasgow to London with my youngest daughter. Miriam had booked to see the Harry Potter Studio Tour on the third of January and was intending on going with friends, not her old dad. But her friends could no longer make it and I, without really thinking about it, said I'd go with her. 

I totally loved it when I got there ... the Tour is fantastic and London is such a vibrant place to be. The coach journey, however, was something else. 

What gave me some comfort as we sped down to London (and then back up overnight from the fourth) was Cousin Silas' Dronescapes. I have a playlist of 039 to 046 on my iPhone, and I listened to them as I drifted in and out of sleep. 

Dronescape 047 (waag_drs047) is a worthy addition to Cousin Silas' collection of Dronescapes on waag and a welcome addition to my collection on my iPhone ... a vibrant, glacial piece that speaks of the liminal spaces found in the cold, quiet dawn and the dark, mysterious dusk. 

I hope you find solace in this piece

Please Note: 
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 do, we need to levy a small charge for some of our releases. Please help out by buying the dronescape.

Presenting ... Music For The Dark Days (waag_rel153) by EISENLAGER MARIANI

 What better way to start 2022 than with "Music For The Dark Days" ... an EP from the collaborative partnership of electronic musicians EISENLAGER and Sergio Mariani aka EISENLAGER MARIANI.

"Music For The Dark Days" features four exceptionally beautiful ambient electronic tracks that expertly convey the dark days of winter ... the cold, biting wind and incessant, uncomfortable darkness ... the beating of your heart as move slowly, struggling with deep snow ... that sound of silence as the snow carpets the world around you ... all expressed in the merging of two minds into one sound. I honestly don't know where EISENLAGER ends and Sergio Mariani begins (and vice versa) ... and that is such a good thing!

"Music For The Dark Days" is a wonderful start to the year, one that I will come back to over the weeks and months to come. I hope you will come to cherish it too.

As before, 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’.
