I have been work­ing on an album ver­sion of the Glim­mer of Hope or Skin or Light sound track with KT Niehoff.  It is done, it is awe­some and it was release to the world today. glimmer01

It has been an epic expe­ri­ence. I’m so excited about it.  There will be more about the whole expe­ri­ence to come, but for now I just want to share some beau­ti­ful pho­tos, videos and reviews.

Yay, yay, yay, reviews? Thank you so much for lis­ten­ing and writ­ing John Noyd, Simon Smith and Ken Scrudato.

John Noyd from Max­i­mum Ink wrote our first fan­tas­tic full album review I feel like he totally got it, “A dar­ing, dar­ling musi­cal revue fea­tur­ing punk-goth operas topped in macabre cabaret arias barg­ing into off-Broadway bal­lads, “Glim­mer,” daz­zles in rapid cos­tume changes applied with styl­ized guile. Sprung from the col­lec­tive con­scious­ness of KT Niehoff and Ivory Gray-Smith, Eat The Apple’s sound­track to their unpre­dictably orig­i­nal 2010 project is stun­ning fun-house phi­los­o­phy sport­ing dark car­nal hap­pi­ness from smart melo­dra­matic radicals.”

Black­Book pre­miered the video below on Octo­ber 13th.

Simon Smith from Higher Plain Music also reviewed the video, “Whilst I could ref­er­ence sev­eral things in the post to Kate Bush, I’d rather focus on one of the most unique and haunt­ingly inquis­i­tive tracks I’ve heard in 2016. “Hou­dini” is the lead track from Eat the Apple’s lat­est release. Eat the Apple are duo KT and Ivory. KT cre­ated a dance the­atre glam rock show called “A Glim­mer of Hope or Skin or Light” which had sold out runs in 2010 and 2015. Join­ing with Ivory around the same time, the two have worked on cre­at­ing a sound­track from that show and this is the result.

The video for “Hou­dini” is visu­ally strik­ing and moves across var­i­ous exper­i­men­tal art pieces and I’m gen­uinely excited to hear the sound­track in full.”

And I’m pretty stoked to say that Metal Talk also reviewed our video, woohoo.
