Gavin Miller

Yorkshire-based experimentalist Gavin Miller - one-half of worriedaboutsatan - is back with a new EP Shimmer, his first outing on the Greek label Sound In Silence. Reverb heavy guitar and piano work is for the most part placed centre-stage, surrounded by ambient sound design that makes the minuscule feel seismic. This is a limited vinyl run of o...view item »

Ben Rath
Anything Is Possible

Sound In Silence tend to do a good job with their releases. They’re always short runs that are delightfully compiled in handmade packaging. Real labours of love.

North Atlantic Drift
Departures, Vol. 2

Ooh look, it's another lovely card-and-envelope-bound release from Sound In Silence this time from North Atlantic Drift. Can Departures, Vol. 2 really be Mike Abercrombie and Brad Deschamps' sixth full-length album? Apparently it is so. Edging away from their erstwhile post-rock melodicisms, the duo have made a pared-do...view item »

yndi halda
A Sun-Coloured Shaker

Having spent a near-decade writing 2016’s Under Summer LP, it was only natural than yndi halda would have some stuff left on the cutting room floor. Twelve-minutes-long ‘A Sun-Coloured Shaker’ grew up alongside that naturalistic, folksy LP, and the track displays many of the same traits as Under Su...view item »

Brave Timbers
Secret Hopes

A Lily
Ten Drones On Cassette

As the more eager-eyed of you might spot, A Lily’s Ten Drones On Cassette is actually a CD release. Fake news? Sort of. The Brighton artist originally self-released single-copy editions of these ten drones in early 2017, with each one taking up one side of a tape. This Sound in Silence edition con...view item »

Test Card

Test Card—the solo project from Vancouver-based prolific electro-pioneer Lee Nicholson—is back with his second album ‘Rediffusion’, out on Sound of Silence records.

Odd Nosdam

LIF by Odd Nosdam is the ultimate addition to any man, woman or child's ambient and drone collection. A nice mix of soft landscaping sounds with gentle rhythmic buzzes, this record is available on CD, released on Sound In Silence and will be one of only 200 handmade and hand-numbered copies in a white recycled - we...view item »


Sound In Silence have a habit of releasing pretty decent ambient records that allow you to completely enter a new world when you put your headphones in, or crack on the record player. Transhumante by Crisopa is no different. A melodic affair that sounds like the backing track to a strange but wonderful life. Available o...view item »

Calcifer EP

I wonder if Hessien have named this EP after the fire in ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’...I hope so, I do like that film, but I suppose it doesn’t really matter. What’s happening on this record is that Tim Diagram (Maps & Diagrams, Atlantis, etc) has teamed up with Charles...view item »

FJORDNE & stabilo

Tokyo’s FJORDNE and Hiroshima’s stabilo provide two tracks apiece to this CD. The combination works well - the former’s billowing, 30s-jazz-club piano playing and dense sound collages play nicely off of stabilo’s murkier ambiences. There is more than a shade of early Eno ...view item »

Moshimoss & Stabilo

FIIEII is the mini slice of collaborative wonderment from Japanese based artists Moshimoss & Stabilo. The piece as a whole is crammed with warm sounds and quality songwriting, whilst an otherworldly quality runs throughout. Comprised of four tracks, this release may be snappy but it lacks nothing w...view item »

Yours Are Stories Of Sadness

Interesting one this. Last year the prolific techno/ambient dreamscaper bvdub put a collection of 19 tracks up on his Bandcamp, saying each had been inspired by a poignant conversation with a hired dancer in a bar. Each cuts swells and aches with the title’s ‘stories of sadness’- half-remembered rave synths dro...view item »

Some subtle expansions from Wil Bolton. Whorl is a series of slow burning ambient compositions from the multi-medium artist.

Absent Without Leave are the moniker of Greece-based George Mastrokostas, a multi-instrumentalist whose releases provide a neat take on your wholesome, melancholic post rock gear with an aesthetic that blatantly culls from the whole Epic45/The Declining Winter/Hood vibe of season-based melancholy i.e. hand made ...view item »

Millimetrik/Building Castles Out of Matchsticks

Here's a nice thing. It's a split six track 3" CD in a sort of cassette sized case albeit a bit thinner and less brittle by Millimetrik and Building Castles Out of Matchsticks. The former yes.... The latter, no I've not heard of 'em either. So you get two tracks by each artist and them remixing each other for a couple of tracks. There's your s...view item »
