Chvad SB - Crickets Were the Compass Chvad SB - Crickets Were The Compass
CD Album 2014 | Silber 153
6 tracks, 54 minutes
$12 ($18 international, $5 download)
Crickets Were The Compass is a provocative, challenging, cinematic LP.  It creates a strong, darkly dystopic narrative that is as heavenly as it is haunting.  A powerful offering from a hugely talented artist.
~ Knifed in Venice

Chvad SB of Things Outside the Skin & Controlled Bleeding comes to Silber for an ambient drone lament on love & loss.

QRD - The Guitarists Various Artists - QRD - The Guitarists
MP3 compilation 2014 | Silber 154
55 tracks, 231 minutes
$20 (320 kbps, ~500 megs (includes 58 page digital booklet & 2388 page ebook))
In 2010 QRD started a series of interviews with guitar players after spending two years coming up with 58 questions about approaches & techniques of playing, & since it's QRD all the guitarists were a bit out of the mainstream.  After ten sets of interviews it was time to bundle everything together & ask the guitarists if they had some sound to contribute.  So we ended up with something pretty massive.  55 tracks of guitarists pushing their instruments & rigs.  A 50+ page digital booklet.  A 2388 page ebook of interviews with guitarists.  I like to think I went all out on this.  I feel like there’s no justice in mentioning individual contributors & barely even genres.  The pieces flow from ambient to folk to drone to jazz to metal to noise & back around several times in its nearly 4 hour run time.  So sit back & relax & drone out & bliss out & freak out a good chunk of your day away.

Full listing of guitarists on the compilation.

...their self-titled debut manages to sound simultaneously cinematic and intimate, contemporary and yet old-fashioned — at it’s heart, it’s part David Lynch soundtrack & Joan Baez-era folk song...a haunting, unsettling beauty.
~ William Ruben Helms, The Joy of Violent Movement

Feel No Other returns with their full length debut of cinematic americana storytelling.

Origami Arktika: Absolut Gehör Origami Arktika - Absolut Gehör
MP3 Album 2014 | Silber 156
7 tracks, 44 minutes

Absolut Gehör manages to fuse elements of drone, industrial noise, folk and jazz in a heady, surreal mix that evokes the sound of the post-apocaylpyse; in other words, melancholy, anxious, unsettled & yet possessing a hushed beauty.
~ William Ruben Helms, The Joy of Violent Movement

Our favorite experimental Norwegian folk droners return.  Fans of post rock, psych, drone, & lofi should take note of this if they know the language or not.
