The collaboration of Cousin Silas and Kevin Lyons is an inspired one … fuelled by a shared love of pulp sci-fi and leftfield music. It is a partnership that I cannot get enough of.
“Interplanetary Blues (waag_rel079)” is a remarkable release: expressive, engaging and wonderfully atmospheric; it is my kind of experimental ambient electronic music. Yes … at times there are beats but they add to the overall whole of the album.
This album has become the soundtrack to my life and has accompanied me on a number of journeys both into and out of Glasgow. It just fits.
The artwork, kindly provided by Andreas Schwietzke, also fits. He his the silent party in this partnership, inspiring the chaps with his otherworldly artwork. Schwietzke is our Roger Dean and we are all grateful for that.
I am delighted to support the partnership of Cousin Silas and Kevin Lyons, and proud to release their latest album on weareallghosts. I hope you will enjoy what they have prepared as much as I do.
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’ which does include ‘free’. If you decide to download this album here for free, and you can with our best wishes, then all we ask is that you please tell people about it.
