Hope everyone is doing well. Life is good here at Silber even if I am struggling to get everything to happen in a timely manner. The hurricane that came through & flooded a lot of communities around me had no effect here in the new Silberia. The power didn’t even go out, but then walking around the neighborhood I saw an oak that feel splitting a neighbors house in two, so I count my blessings that things are so good for me. My little drone cub just turned one & in good health & spirits & that she vacuums up all my spare time is something I don’t mind. Silber has always been about family to me anyhow & it’s interesting how huge of a percentage of Silber artist. So anyway on with what’s up lately including three new 5in5 EPs.
Koyl comes to Silber with five songs in five minutes, one about each finger. But are the fingers originally on one hand or are they fingers from dead men stitched together to tell tales of angst & woe? No matter, now they all are part of the one & making incredible soundscapes with a guitar & lapsteel.

Joshua Heinrich (Fornever/Black Wedding) returns to Silber for a 5in5 EP with his Premature Burial project. Mixing industrial & ambient elements, f/a/c/t/i/o/n/s paints a portrait of the current political climate of divisiveness & corruption. The bureaucracy is spreading like a Kafka novel. Listen to Premature Burial while you’re on hold for hours.

Cloaca has offered up five minute long aggressive ambient drones created with pedals & a mixing board. Numbing & overwhelming like the chemicals in your IV before brain surgery….
