about

'Shelter' is the second album by SILMUS in a cooperation with musician and producer minco eggersman. The album was mostly recorded in the high north of the Netherlands with additional recordings by minco eggersman and recordings in the living room of sound engineer jan borger.
The record has been released by dutch label VOLKOREN and got excellent reviews from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Belgium, Sweden and The Netherlands:

´It lies in the tenderness of the music, in the warmth it emanates.. this music is like salve for the broken soul´ (Enola)

'These tracks serve as a retreat, a haven for the tired soul.. the compositions are melancholy and nostalgic, yet you can't help feel restored, relaxed and positive after listening.. there is not a failing moment to be found anywhere on the album' (Irregular crates)

´Shelter is an album of serene beauty..´ (Roar E-zine)

'This is a really lovely instrumental album not only for fans of beautiful ambient but also lovers of shimmery guitar as well' (Make your own taste)

'The electronic sounds, all different instruments and last but not least the sparse female vocals provide an intense journey of listening' (Hifi)

´The pieces remain tightly constructed despite the efforts of their ambient and post-rock proclivities...Whatever happened, his most compelling music so far was borne of it.´ (a closer listen)

'Silmus again succeeds in creating a lovely ambiance, a marvelous minimalistic beauty' (ccmfocus)

Very special is the beautiful limited edition of only 35 copies, which includes a unique engraved stone, a SILMUS-signed wooden holder together with a digipack. For people who like something special made with love and passion!
