Silber Records sends holiday greetings

Today we have a great holiday special, an unusual compilation of music from Raleigh's Silber Records. Steve of Subscape Annex fills us in on the details.

Steve: My friend Brian who runs Silber asked me to contribute to this year's instance of his biennial seasonal music compilation. "The 2008 installment of our Christmas compilation series features 26 tracks of Norwegian folk, indie ambient, shoegaze, aggressive ambient, & electroacoustics. Strangely enough there seem to be somewhere around zero covers of traditional Christmas tunes this time out." The entire album is available for free download on

Artists involved for the 2008 compilation are: Varde, Hotel Hotel, Clang Quartet, Andrew Weathers, Charles De Mar, Electric Bird Noise, Glissade, Sailor Winters, Miss Massive Snowflake, Goddakk, Gorgons, Small Life Form, Lauri des Marais, Ligo, Moodring, slicnaton, Remora, Moral Crayfish, The Carnage Visors, South West Airline, Northern Valentine, Spotlight Kid, The Left Channel, Recorded Home, The Child of A Creek, and Subscape Annex.

Steve created the Subscape Annex piece "Sleighride" with Chapman Stick, E-Bows, capos, Moog MF-104 analog delay, Boss RC-20 & RC-20XL, Digitech Jamman, then final processing through Sound Soap and Audacity.

All of us here on the Interwebs wish you a wonderful holiday season!
