LOW STOCK LEVEL
"That Silver Summit is a New York band is undeniable. The darkness and frenetic claustrophobia of NYC ebbs from every sonic pore of the band's debut long player. New York City is nothing, though, if not trace elements of the globe's disparate cultures (made uniform through earth and steel and flesh). Multiculturalism (a dreaded word, I know) informs Silver Summit's sonic character as much as the blackened brownstone facades, hidden public gardens and slumbering subway commuters must. Where else than to seek unmitigated conflations of metal, dream-pop, oriental, British folk and other harmonious dissonances than in the band's own musings? The musical layers are infinite, as are the listener's chances at discovery. Silver Summit is: David Shawn Bosler (electric/classical/acoustic lead guitars, percussion, backing vocals); Sondra Sun-Odeon (vocals, slide/rhythm guitar, baglama saz, mandolin, keys/piano, cymbals, percussion)."
