It is almost exactly a year to the day that 2 - the second album from Cousin Silas, Tim Jones & Kevin Lyons - was recorded ... the accumulation of a week of creative experimentation and collaboration between three old friends. Unfortunately I was unable to attend that particular meeting of minds but was delighted with the album when it arrived in my in-box.

Underpinned by Jones’ samples and loops, 2 is a sonically adventurous and wonderfully imaginative journey into more abstract, experimental electronica … whilst Silas’ ambient guitar is present and Lyons’ attention to detail is apparent … this is something more, something rather mysterious and intriguing.

In many ways, this shouldn’t work … three people with three different, distinct styles … but it does and it does in such a way that you don’t know where the extent of the individual contributions reach. This is a collaboration in it’s truest form and it is a real pleasure to listen to.

A 320kbps version of this release will be available over on Archive (archive.org/details/we-are-all-ghosts) for free with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’. It is important to note that weareallghosts is funded through the donations we receive for albums such as this. To help us to continue to put out this level of quality in the quantity that we do then please donate. Ask yourself, how much would you realistically pay for a CD? …and remember, everyone who gives something for this album can stream it via Bandcamp.
