Following his phoenix-like rise from the ashes in late 2016, Papa M strikes back with just four acoustic guitars and a bit of drums. Naturally, it's completely spellbinding and hypnotizing and engrossing and also kind of pretty, but yeah, a little frightening too. The five songs of A Broke Moon Rises find David focusing his technique in unknown directions, to find out what he can do with them. As the quietly funereal march of the opening track resonates with a spare drum beat, we are completely transfixed into the open spaces around the guitars. Silhouetted against a broke moon, Papa M rides again!
