Mark McGuire – “In Search Of The Miraculous”
Ambient guitarist Mark McGuire (of Emeralds) has a deep catalog of innovative, expansive music; it can be hard to keep up with his prolific output, which sees release through a variety of micro-indies (though his blog is a pretty good source for keeping it all straight), but McGuire’s music is so purely beautiful that no matter when or how you get there, it will engage and reward you. “In Search Of The Miraculous” is from a forthcoming LP, Along The Way, which will be released this summer via Japanese label Inpartmaint., Inc. It’s just about the most fluid, transporting, meditative music in the world. I can’t recommend it highly enough, and I can’t wait to sink into the album for an entire summer weekend or two when it emerges. Listen.
