Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Remora is the main alias of Silber Records honcho Brian John Mitchell. In 15 years, the man has cover a lot of ground, and Scars Bring Hope, while featuring only new material, kind of sums up past experiences. Inside you will find post-apocalyptic folk songs, drones, and electronic music. Helped by Electric Bird Noise’s Brian Lee McKenzie, who dragged him out of the bedroom and into a proper recording studio, Remora delivers an album more definitive-sounding than usual, a good point of entry into his universe – a dark, fallen universe with very little hope left."-Francois Couture, Monsieur Delire
