Boomkat Product Review:
It's Audraglint's fifth birthday and for those without the requisite funds to attend their American-based shin-dig, this nice little compilation will compensate for missing your cake in a napkin... Featuring the likes of Tarwater, Grizzly Bear, Kid 606, Magwheels and Stars As Eyes, 'Silverware' calls upon their back catalogue as well as providing a platform for newer talent from their local scene in Portland, OR. Housed in nice matt digipack, the music offered on 'Silverware' is as diverse as you'd imagine - slipping from the thrumming-tronica of Tarwater and break-pocked indie of 'Orange and Allred' through to Grizzly Bear's acoustic 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart' and the soapy soundscapes of Marc Hellner. Cohesive without sanding off the distinctive edges of those involved, this is a party worth getting your frock out for. Gold!
