Mirage is a cosmic collaboration between the Silver Apples and Makoto Kawabata of Japan’s Acid Mothers Temple. Packaged in a deluxe jacket printed with metallic silver ink. This album is dedicated to the memory of Simeone Coxe who died September 8, 2020 while this project was being assembled. “Dragonfly’s First Flight,” taking up the full side A, features Simeon Coxe and Makoto jamming over familiar Silver Apples hypnotic rhythms. Fans of both groups will delight in the interplay between Simeon’s keyboard and Makoto’s drone guitar feedback soloing. Side B ranges from free-form freakouts to ambient poetry readings by Simeon with Japanese translation spoken by Makoto. “Future Reminiscence,” which closes side B, sounds like a long-lost Silver Apples track.
