SONG OF THE DAY: 'Ruin' by Mappe Of
    • MONDAY, JULY 17, 2017

    "Ruin"-- the latest single by Canadian ambient folk musician Mappe Of -- is the kind of song you need to play at full volume so you can be completely immersed in it's darkly intense sound. The song's opening feels like it is pulling you into a hypnotic trance. Far-off horns and harmonizing voices layer with hazy trills to weave an intro that sounds like the creation of Bon Iver's cousin from outer space. The spell builds into a spiraling repetition of the dramatic chorus "Collapsing in the street" before bursting into a powerful beat punctuated by ripping guitar chords. Finally, you are left with gently tinkling guitars that completely disconnect from the song's previous mood. I actually thought Youtube had automatically started playing the next song on the cue when I heard Mappe Of's outro.

    Mappe Of is a dude who seems to be as mysterious as his latest track. He is not named in any online reviews or articles about the music he has released thus far, and is instead referred to as "the songwriter" or simply "he". What we do know, however, is that his debut album, A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone is scheduled for release on July 28th and that it promises to be the perfect album for blasting in your headphones to tune out mundane reality.
