Hope you all are well. Hurricane Dorian came here on the coast of the Carolinas, but seemed to have limited impact on Silber HQ & our allies & we’re thankful for that. There’s a lot going on at the moment & will probably be a new newsletter pretty shortly, but here’s the news right now.
August Fields 2019 finished up with 35 contributions. To make things a little easier on everyone, I made a collection of all the pieces that you can grab here at the pay what you want model – https://silbermedia.bandcamp.com/album/august-fields-2019-complete-collection
As some of you may know my folks basement has served as Silber’s warehouse for about 20 years (starting the first year I put out 10 releases in a year) & a few years ago they started having flooding issues because of the city approving some new subdivisions that send their storm water onto my parents’ lot. Well, things on that have finally come to fruition & the city is buying them out & tearing the house down. I don’t want to just throw the CDs away, so I’m offering a ridiculous special. 12 CDs for $12 including shipping. Get them here while supplies last – https://silbermedia.bandcamp.com/merch/12-cd-warehouse-cleaning-special
There was a Remora improv drone rock show recently. I’m probably going to be able to make the audio into a release or maybe we’ll re-record it. I’m unsure at the moment. But here’s the video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW5Z2iSZuWQ
Finally you may have already heard, but there’s a new Aarktica album & you can grab it on Bandcamp https://aarktica.bandcamp.com/ or it is available from all the regular streaming spots.
New music & a new QRD hopefully in about two weeks. QRD will include a Lycia interview that I am pretty excited about as it is an attempt at doing something new interview wise for me as it’s a new method. New 5in5s coming from Baptizer & Hyperborean Echoes, the That’s What I Call Silence compilation, the Symphonic Plunderphonic compilation, & albums from Wodwo, Whalt Thisney, & Stoic Automaton.
I’m feeling upbeat at the moment, life’s hard & good here, thanks for your continued interest & support for what I’ve been doing for 25 years.
