Paul Asbury Seaman Most artists making space music resort to heavy electronic drones and dark ambient noise. Brother Saturn gives us the gentle void: an emptiness broken only by awe and a hope that must be constantly renewed. (Jaja, and Scott Lawlor, are the only ambient artists I know doing similar work.) Weareallghosts owner Thomas Mathie is understandably enthusiastic about each new release by one of his artists, but he does so in such an endearing way, and the superlatives are well-earned, not hype. Favorite track: In The Darkest Night.

about

It's been a while ... more than four years since the last instalment in the "Tales of Space Exploration" series from Brother Saturn aka Drew Miller ... and in that time Drew has grown as a musician and as a person.

We have heard from Drew in the intervening time ... "Unstable Lands (waag_rel097)", "Apollo, can you hear me? (waag_rel104)", and "Music for Sleep (waag_rel130)" ... but there has always been a desire, at least for me, to revisit the familiar themes of travel, desolation, home and of loneliness; the themes the "Tales of ..." series so eloquently describe.

I am so glad that the series continues ... and hope you are too?

I am delighted to welcome Mason Van Kraayenburg who contributes to the track "Night Owls & Hummingbirds" and gives us all the feels with his guitar playing ... it is a collaboration that shows a new level of maturity from Miller, one that I welcome with open arms.

I also welcome Adam Howie's artwork and am so grateful that he agreed to work with us again ... it just wouldn't be the same without his masterful illustration gracing the cover of the latest "Tales of ..." release. His piece - "The Unknown Meaning of the Journey" is available to purchase and I would heartily encourage you to support Howie's art. Go here > linktr.ee/kimded < for more information.

A 320kbps version of this release will be available, for free, over on Archive (archive.org/details/we-are-all-ghosts) with a lossless version available here on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’.

- Thomas
