so this is christmas

Alright, spent the day working on this years Christmas compilation.  Our intern Ben Collins put everything together & it’s called White Silber.  Go to to check it out.  A zip file should be available in a day or two, but right now I think you need to download individual files….

It’s interesting to me to see the drops in download numbers & that there are Vlor & Remora items downloaded so many times.  & why is one of the Rollerball EPs downloaded five times as much as the other two?  & why are the Small Life Form & Northern Valentine so low?  800 downloads of stuff from the free collection last week gives me faith in the idea that people are interested in getting Silber music for free.  We’ll see what all happens over the next couple of weeks as along with the new Christmas collection there will be some other free stuff as well & hopefully there will be some people clicking the donation links (that didn’t exist until a couple months ago & there hasn’t been a free release since they exist) & then I won’t be able to complain about money anymore.
