MP3 Album 2000 (re-issued 2014) | Silber 158
12 tracks, 68 minutes

Minimalist drone, aggressive ambient, electro-acoustic, organic, whatever you call it to describe it doesn't change this from being a great record.
~ Brian John Mitchell, QRD

If Thousands classic first album.  Somewhere between ambient, drone, avant jazz, shoegaze, & experimental noise is where Candice Recorder record lies.  Probably their darkest album & a must listen for fans of bands like Coil & Goblin.

QRD - The Guitarists Various Artists - QRD - The Guitarists
MP3 compilation 2014 | Silber 154
55 tracks, 231 minutes
$20 (320 kbps, ~500 megs (includes 58 page digital booklet & 2388 page ebook))
55 tracks of guitar madness contributed by the interviewees (231 minutes y’all), with sweet shreds by the likes of Aidan Baker (Nadja), Alan Sparhawk (Low), Bill Horist (Master Musicians of Bukake), and a whole host of others.
Tiny Mix Tapes

In 2010 QRD started a series of interviews with guitar players after spending two years coming up with 58 questions about approaches & techniques of playing, & since it's QRD all the guitarists were a bit out of the mainstream.  After ten sets of interviews it was time to bundle everything together & ask the guitarists if they had some sound to contribute.  So we ended up with something pretty massive.  55 tracks of guitarists pushing their instruments & rigs.  A 50+ page digital booklet.  A 2388 page ebook of interviews with guitarists.  I like to think I went all out on this.  I feel like there’s no justice in mentioning individual contributors & barely even genres.  The pieces flow from ambient to folk to drone to jazz to metal to noise & back around several times in its nearly 4 hour run time.  So sit back & relax & drone out & bliss out & freak out a good chunk of your day away.

Electric Bird Noise does a good job of making limited themes go a long way and exploring the possibilities of thematic development that also produces creatively cosmic music.

Really engaging ambient music that runs a broad gamut.

For longer than I can remember Silber has had a segment of fans in Macedonia thanks to DJ, journalist, musician, & general good guy Toni Dimitrov.  To help build the links between Silber & Macedonia we teamed up with Toni & his label Post Global Recordings to bring you a sampling of ambient music from Macedonia that fits in with the Silber aesthetic.  Relax & drone out.
