Edward Appleby's Self-Titled EP is, in as few words, a short collection of music and songs meditating on the themes of self-awareness and introspective identification. The EP begins tentatively, the tension of the coiled cadences in “Introduction” begin to slowly unravel into an outpouring emotional ascendance. A journey rife with self-fulfilling prophecies and other pitfalls of ego-naut, the EP culminates in the haunting and cathartic “Yester Dénouement,” whereby Edward finally finds peace; just man and guitar. Has he found himself? Probably not, but at least the wolves have stopped howling.
It is with great pleasure that Edward can postpone his inevitable death with the release of his first EP.
Edward is currently hard at work on his next EP, along with scoring a film. Edward will soon release “Lo, the snow in the chimney froze!,” an excerpt from his multi-movement Christmas epic (slated for release in December, 2011).
