If you’re looking for an album full of predictable electronic tracks this next album is not for you. However, if you’re willing to go the distance through a maze of sampled sounds with neatly packed instrumentation, you’ll appreciate the sounds of Moon Apple.

Myth Maker ~ Dream Destroyer is the debut release from Montreal based audio engineer-producer-musician Moon Apple. Thematically the album centers around the everyday mythologies of 21st-century living. Moon Apple explains, “What I observed was this generation’s struggle of e-incarnation and digital self-identity. How we recklessly throw real and made-up fragments of ourselves into an interconnected ocean of consciousness, only to result in dilution and dissolution. It seems so hopeful and hopeless at the same time.”

We recklessly throw real and made-up fragments of ourselves into an interconnected ocean of consciousness, only to result in dilution and dissolution. It seems so hopeful and hopeless at the same time.

What I find so impressive about this release is the way these nine tracks, over the course of 30 minutes constantly forgo any kind of commitment to a singular sound. Each track is an entirely new composition with its own dedicated rhythm(s). If you listen to “Breaking it Down” and compare it to “A Visceral Shun” you’ll get a sense of what I’m talking about here. Coming together as a whole, each track on the album reflects a bit more of Moon Apple’s technical expertise. There’s so much more that I want to hear from Moon Apple.
