I'm really excited for this, sounds really, really good!
anybody grip those air jordans??
I'm becoming a Mark McGuire superfan (one who cares not for Emeralds though, hmm)
Timed this well as my 2cd 'A Young Persons Guide' dropped through the mail yesterday morning, squee!
Cannot wait for the release.
This sounds very good.
and repeatedly enjoying an album by Mark McGuire, I STILL always first think of Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray when I see his name.
everyone should listen to this. really beautiful. can't wait for the record. did i read somewhere it was coming out on Arbor as well as Bark & Hiss, or did I make that up? i'm not sure.
(lovely cover art too)
gonna listen to it again now.
This is beautiful. Similarly, so is his compilation on Editions Mego, A Young Persons Guide. I'd thoroughly recommend getting hold of it as soon as it's available (if it's not already).
Certainly sets him up to rival Ferraro as one of the most distinctive and musically talented people within the US lo-fi underground. Really, it serves to make it obvious how diverse he is - he's capable of doing the whole muddy, submerged H-pop thing, as on a lot of his cassette stuff, but also really beautiful, clean solo guitar pieces. And as Emeralds can attest to, mindblowing kosmische as well.
have you heard Trouble Book's Gathered Tomes btw. think you'd really enjoy it. perfect blend of the synth-revivalist stuff emeralds etc. do w/ some really beautiful, effective songwriting to match. they're just brilliant.
I think its being released on B&H and Wagon, so both the artists own labels. I'll hopefully have quite a few copies on distro.
