Having formed in 2004 in Brooklyn, NY by then Mercury Rev keyboardist Justin Russo, The Silent League is a ever changing collect which has included artists from Interpol, Beirut, Arcade Fire, Maps, Leisure Society and more. As one can see from the names of remix artists on this mixtape, the group pulls some serious respect.
We Go Forward is a step into new territory for The Silent League. Inspired by remixes of tunes from their 3rd album, But You’ve Always Been The Caretaker in 2010, We Go Forward is a new collection of classic Silent League tracks, from each of their albums, freshly remixed by a variety of their friends and collaborators. It also includes a live fan favorite – a cover of Broken Social Scene’s “Texico Bitches” recorded with members of Maps and The Leisure Society and a cover of The Chameleons, classic, “Tears.”
