New Silian Rail Out Now. The Hottest Thing Since Sunburn.


Silian Rail: Each/OtherAnnouncing Silian Rail’s new, third album each/other, an evolution in composition and technical craftsmanship. Maintaining the melodically dense, open-tuned guitar and criss-crossed drumming of previous releases, each/other adds in melancholic piano, lush strings and noisy percussion, feedback and viola. The band credits engineer and co-producer Robert Cheek for the enhanced sonic sounds, as well as the addition of local artists Dina Maccabee (of Ramon & Jessica) and Lynne Angel (of Tartufi). – Whitney Phaneuf, The Deli

Silian Rail touring in Eric’s soccer mom station wagon

Mercury SableEric and Robin are good friends of ours. We share a practice space, we draw dirty things on each other’s writeboards, but I would not be painting a complete picture if I didn’t mention that  they tour in a Mercury Sable station wagon.  This is, in fact, the second one that Eric has owned, and he definitely sees the trend continuing.

So kids, when you see this friendly maroon wagon pull up at half time of your game, I’m sorry, they don’t have orange slices, but they do know how to play a good rock song.
