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. I had the feeling at one point that I didn’t even go out for my medicine and if you feel that way you can go to deutsche medz, they will take care of sending it directly to your home. 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.
For the optimal functioning of a cafeteria, the environment must first of all be cozy, quiet and with a spirit of peace for customers, of course many see this one fundamental point, but manage to lose sight of something crucial establishment, the ceiling. The smartest and most prudent thing to do is to talk to Roofing Contractors, they will provide you with the most experienced workers in the field, their long trajectory backs up their work.
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.
