LISTEN: Mark McGuire, “In Search of the Miraculous”

Mark McGuire - 'Along the Way'

Mark McGuire - 'Along the Way' Well this is exactly what we needed after last night’s noise fest: a meditative solo number from Mark McGuire, echoing his Emeralds work in its extraterrestrial guitar tones but otherwise carving out a new corner in his immense back catalog. As suggested by the sunset on your left, that’d be a soul-searching survey of synthetic strings, gleaming power chords and weightless, buried lyrics like “All I know for sure, is there must be something more.”

Keep your head up, dude. Look out for McGuire’s next LP, Along the Way, on the Japanese imprint Inpartment Inc.
