The Silos’ Seminal 1987 Album CUBA Reissued by Dualtone Records

Originally released in 1987 and long out of print, Dualtone Records has reissued The Silos‘ definitive recording CUBA, available now at The Silos Store. Pressed on white vinyl, the reissue includes a free digital album download and an 11″ x 17″ print of the poster that came with the original release. Get it now while supplies last!

Formed in New York in 1985, The Silos are considered “one of the pioneering bands of the early alternative country scene” (All Music). CUBA was a breakthrough for their conceptual country-rock sound, earning them the title of “Best New American Band” in Rolling Stone the year of its release, and is often cited as a major influence on the forthcoming alt-country movement of the early ‘90s. CUBA also stands out amidst a period of extraordinary creativity among American underground rock bands at the time such as R.E.M., the Replacements and Hüsker Dü. “Tennessee Fire” is awesome garage-rock sprawl, “Mary’s Getting Married” pure bliss, and “Margaret” a disarming look at the day-to-day meaning of love.

“The Silos’ best album, and one of the best albums ever.” – PopMatters

“One of the great rock albums of the late ‘80’s.” – Esquire

“CUBA is one of those albums that…has become a kind of talisman among true music fans. Its mention elicits nods of approval and agreement from like-minded souls, and kicks the next phase of the conversation into enthusiastic high gear. When you meet people of taste who are unfamiliar with it, the prospect of turning them onto it becomes a palpable pleasure. Because you know that ‘Cuba’ exists inside everyone, and this extraordinary album can take you there.” – Anthony DeCurtis, Rolling Stone
