"Heavy Ghost, the debut album from DM Stith, cast an almost supernatural effect on reviewers and fans when it was released in March of 2009. Both groups acclaimed it as a stunning debut unlike anything else they'd heard. Stith's peers received it well too: Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear twittered about it calling it a 'lovely album,' and Bat for Lashes picked Heavy Ghost for her New York Times playlist, saying 'It traverses all these magical landscapes...almost like Alice through the looking glass. Like you're being sucked into a secret world.' Heavy Ghost Appendices revisits this secret world and adds to its cartography a series of hidden coves, unexplored forests, and new landscapes. Heavy Ghost was also mystifying and intertwined to David when he wrote it; the Appendices were a means to sort the thing out in his mind. They physically collect the digital trilogy of EPs released over the course of the summer and fall of 2009 into a beautifully packaged limited edition double disc set. The EPs were an exercise in exploring the boundaries of the music contained on Heavy Ghost, revisiting songs, reinterpreting, and displaying some inspiration and influences through covers of other artists. The remixes (remixes by Bibio, Son Lux, Ensemble, Clark and more) helped provide new context and deconstruction of his songs in a way that unearthed the songs' roles and relationships to one another."
