Album Review

McGuire, Mark – “Tidings/Amethyst Waves” – [Weird Forest Records]

humana   5/15/2010   A Library, CD

Emeralds??? band member Mark McGuire offers an intense atmospheric trip through ambient soundscapes on this dual solo release. Four epic passages characterized by electric guitars and synth repetitiveness that create a lovely trance. 1 begins with a sample from TV show Northern Exposure. 2 is my favorite with its dreamy drift calling up images of sun slanting lazily through the waters Along the Coral Reef (it even has cricket song). 2 and 4 are great in their own way, as well. Turn it on and space out.
