I hope all is going well & all that’s been happening in the world the last couple of months has not too negatively impacted you. Right now I’m feeling really upbeat after a productive week where I have gotten a few records pretty close to coming out as well as getting one out & getting some comic work done & getting to spend some time doing family things. Just a lot of hope right now, so let me go ahead & tell you what’s been going on.
First of all our April Fields field recording series was completed with 33 artists & 53 tracks & around 7 hours of field recordings & structures built from them. Near silence, ambient walls, industrial noise, & even electro no wave – we’re very pleased with the variety on here. Free download. Worth noting, most of these tracks were rejected from Spotify for not actually being music.
Second is a new album from Luka Fisher. On Just The Hits, Luka Fisher creates lofi, darkwave, experimental, world music, ambient landscapes impossible to classify; but the music of Popol Vuh, Indigo Girls, & Brian Eno may be touchstones. So get in your broken camper van, your beat up corvette, or ride the bus & feel less uniquely alone with Luka Fisher.
I can’t remember if I mentioned it before, but my wife & I are working on opening a coffee & comic shop & while we’re still working on securing a physical location I have started buying comics to have to sell & slinging some of them on Ebay.
Remora, Jon DeRosa, Jessica Bailiff, Lycia, Yellow6, Thorn1, If Thousands, & a ton of other folks appear on a compilation to help benefit the World Health Organization that you might want to check out.
In a similar vein, Azalia Snail did a single called “Stay Put Human” you may want to check out.
Coming soon is new music from Space Sweeper, Whalt Thisney, Vlor, The Undermasks, Grand Kali Ma, & Sans Fixer (Chvad SB). Also hopefully I will get all the interviews I have for QRD proofed & finally get the new issue out. Also I have not been updating the Silber website at all in the past several months & I’ve just been using Bandcamp to post new music & hopefully I will get that updated soon. I’ve also not been sending out newsletters as much as I once did because of problems with my main email being blacklisted as spam, so the best way to keep up is following on Bandcamp, Twitter, or Facebook.
Stay safe & thanks for your continued interest & support.
