Playing catch up with the releases on my netlabel



First up we have "Some Hollow Lullabies (waag_rel025)" by emptywhale ...
From the opening refrain of "The Boy Who Could Hear Colours" through to the closing of "Seeking Reason" I am captivated by the care and attention emptywhale has poured into this release. His piano playing is exemplary and his use of sound to convey an atmosphere is simply remarkable - it is dark and brooding … almost Lovecraftian in suggestion.

We then have the eighth instalment of Cousin Silas' dronescape series ...
I have grown very fond of these longform drones and consider them an utter treat to listen to … and I hope you will enjoy the eighth instalment as much as I do!

The next release is "Good Friday (waag_rel026)" by Stephen Briggs ...
I really connect with Stephen's music … it have connected with it since the first time he let me hear the start of what we now call 'Good Friday (waag_rel026)'. He is a talented musician and a genuinely beautiful human being … someone who gives generously from the deep well of his soul to all who know him.  
 I am honoured to know him and equally honoured to release 'Good Friday (waag_rel026)' on weareallghosts. We always have room for inspired improvisational ambient music. His is a powerful music … a music that comes from all that dwells within him. It is fascinating to listen to.

From there we move to another of Cousin Silas' dronescapes ...
I really love this drone ... I love the tone of this piece ... the atmosphere ... the sense of peace it leaves with me long after it is finished. I love the subtle harmonics that twinkle like stars.

After Dronescape 009 came "Seconds (waag_rel027)" by Kevin Lyons ... a lovely chap who I recently had the pleasure to meet ...
I hope you will enjoy this album as much as I do. I find Kevin’s music to be very visual and take great pleasure in letting my mind wander through the landscapes he paints with sound. It was a pleasure to meet him and it gives me great delight to support and encourage his musical endeavours through weareallghosts.

From one top bloke to another ... one of my musical heroes - Shaun Blezard aka Clutter with "Sunset at the Yacht Club (waag_rel028)" ...
To consider, therefore, that I am able to release an EP of his on waag is a dream come true … the circle is now complete, so to speak … and what an EP it is. I have caught myself wondering what I was listening to when listening to the preview copy … then experiencing a mixture of shock and pleasure when I realise it was an EP destined for my wee label.


----------



Lastly we have the 10th instalment in Cousin Silas' dronescape series ... which is, possibly, his best yet ...
I have to say I agree with him … but then I have spoken before of how his dronescapes just seem to get better and better … especially the wee details and flourishes that he adds to keep his listeners engaged, something I had noticed.

Enjoy.
