When the Telephone Rings

Most great bands evolve and change, building up and tearing down their sound. The Silos have a history. This album is both a departure from the purely stripped down trio recordings of late and a return to the richly textured intricacies of albums such as "Cuba." We find an incredible cast of characters buoying the key components of Walter Salas-Humara, Drew Glackin and Konrad Meissner. The trio’s still working, and the support staff is back: Mary Rowell, Amy Allison, Richard Lloyd, Dave Boyle, Mary Lee Kortes, Dennis Cronin, Don Piper, and Paul Wallfisch. The sound of the album, then, is immediately familiar. These are the Silos you remember. You know it from the first song’s downbeat, and by the chorus you realize: a good friend has come home to visit.
