Silber Most Downloaded Releases of 2013

Top 10 Most Downloaded Silber Releases in 2013:
Yellow6: 5
I was kinda surprised to see this on the top of the charts.  I mean, I know Yellow6 has a good name & all that, but I thought this whole list would be absolutely dominated by the free releases.  I guess part of it is maybe that this came out as the announcement of the end of our hiatus.

Plumerai: Marco Polo EP
A free download from Plumerai.  To be honest I was a little surprised to see this up this high in the charts.  I guess Martin & company might still be pushing it a bit more all these years later than I am!

Electric Bird Noise: Desert Jelly

This was the only CD we put out in 2013.  It’s really good.  I know that most of the downloads came from press people rather than sales & I wish that somehow had translated into a lot of reviews & radio play that led to sales, but I guess I just don’t know what I’m doing as much as I did ten years ago.

Firetail: Learning to Cheat
Our only free release of the year.  To be honest I thought this was going to end up number one on the chart after it got mentioned by Warren Ellis, but no luck on that front.  It’s still a really good release of shoegazery drone.  I’m still trying to figure out if there’s any benefit to doing a free release at this point or if I should always charge a dollar.

Various Artists: 30 Seconds of Time
I’m kinda surprised that this is the only one of our free compilations that made it onto this list.  I mean, this is kind of one of the weirdest comps we’ve done, but I guess maybe that’s a plus?  I don’t remember how many songs this is, but I do know that they’re each only 30 seconds long.

Clang Quartet: Ava
No surprise to see this in the charts.  I love Clang Quartet.  This is a really good capturing of Clang Quartet.  I’m glad it exists & that people are checking it out.

mwvm: Had Yr Pash
This is a great record.  I probably should have put it out on manufactured CD & pushed it harder, but things are so weird to predict & it came along when I had just gone through a slew of economically suspect releases.  At least people are listening to it, which I guess is the most important thing.

Panthan: Five Pointed Swords
Me & Nic Slaton originally recorded these to try to sell to people for film & television placements five years ago.  Then a few years later when we’d given up on that I listened back & things seemed like people might dig them.  I guess they do or it wouldn’t be in the charts.

Brian John Mitchell & Andrew Weathers: Drone is in the Blood
Me & my son’s record about our relationship.  I’m not sure the record is as great as our story, but maybe one day we will record something a little less rushed & better.

Unspeakable Forces: Butterfly Corpse
Oh fuck yeah!  I am so happy to have this on the charts.  Now me & Darin have no excuse not to get the follow up of our weird doomgaze going.
