1997 Steve Albini-Produced Comeback Album Available on Vinyl for the First Time / Colored Copies Are Limited

Beacon is the Silver Apples' fourth album, the "comeback album," produced by Steve Albini and originally released in 1997 on CD only. Eight of the tracks were new songs that former exile and Silver Apples leader Simeon had composed with recent additions Xian Hawkins and Michael Lerner. The remaining three tunes are remakes from the Silver Apples past. A reworking of "I Have Known Love" opens the record. "You and I" is given an appropriate chaotic reading; a wall of cacophonous keyboards forms in the instrumental breaks, like the video game Stargate on tilt. Of the originals, the vocal-less "Cosmic String" is the standout, developing a Trans Am groove with sounds recalling the moment the beloved Pac-Man is caught by his nemesis, Speedy. Beacon is full of the influence of '80s video games, no doubt incorporated by the 20-something Hawkins.
