Dan Gubbins' Silent Paper Radios project is a departure from his past work as a DJ and hip-hop/electronic music producer. Gubbins says that the inspiration for Silent Paper Radios was the "Weird Folk" movement of recent years, but his sound is less showy and more traditional than much of what that trend produced.
New Silent Paper Radios album Reborn As a Wind Chime is one of this year's most pleasant surprises, and the unsigned Gubbins has decided to offer the album as a free download for a limited time. On a MySpace blog entry, he instructs listeners to "Download my album free for a month and spread the silent word!"
