Berlin Evenings (waag_CDr004)

by Cousin Silas

supported by
/
  • Compact Disc (CD)

    The fourth weareallghosts physical release features photography by Lutz Thuns in a beautiful fold out digipack created by promodiscs.co.uk.

    This CD is by everyone's favourite cousin - Cousin Silas - and was mastered by Tim Jones for Stone Premonition ... it features a selection of “Berlin School” inspired synth tracks that will warm your heart.

    On the inside of the digipack Kevin Lyons, once more, waxes lyrical for the liner notes, giving us food for thought on his pal Silas.

    This is a duplicated CDr and may not play correctly on more sensitive CD players. Whilst testing was undertaken prior to release, we cannot guarantee that Berlin Evenings (waag_CDr004) will play on 100% of players.

    As before, please be patient … we aim to get the CDs in the post as near to release date as possible.

about

The only thing you can be sure of when you dive into a Cousin Silas release is that you won't always know what to expect. Over the course of fifteen years and close to 100 releases Silas has established himself as the master of modern ambient music. Each album has a flavour and sound all its own and now here he is with his first album length exploration of the "Berlin school" of electronic music. He's dabbled before of course on tracks here and there, but here he dives head first into this most enduring and beloved form of electronica with a stunning collection of pieces built around the characteristic pulsating sequencers, lush Mellotron-inspired pads, authentically retro-sounding leads and of course flashes of that familiar Silas guitar.
What impresses the most here - as it does with all Silas releases - is the breadth of the material on offer. One might expect that, having chosen to focus on one sub-set of electronic music, Silas would have restricted his sonic palette, narrowed his vision, but not a bit of it. This is no slavish pastiche, no simple wallow in nostalgia. This is, as ever with the music of Cousin Silas, vital, uplifting and inspiring music that offers endless rewards with each subsequent play.

- Kevin Lyons, 2016

My sincere thanks to everyone who has supported this journey:
To Tim, Lutz, & Kevin ... it takes a village and we're so glad you reside in ours! To the waag family who have kept us going ... thank you!!! And to Dave ... thanks for your faith in me.
