Mark McGuire – “The Instinct”

Back in May we posted ex-Emeralds guitar wiz Mark McGuire’s “In Search Of The Miraculous,” a song from his concept album Along The Way that has so far only been available in Japan. The LP is the most ambitious and emotionally gripping thing McGuire has ever done and now it’s finally got an official U.S. release for 2014. He’s made up for the delay by dropping “The Instinct,” a twelve minute epic that hovers right in the middle of the album. McGuire is in full on world building mode with this one, increasing the tension for six minutes before the rhythm section comes in and he finally lets loose on his guitar. Check it out below along with a remix by Prins Thomas.

Along The Way is finally out 2/4 on Dead Oceans.

Also, don’t bother with baseball jokes because Tom’s already won with “The only PEDs that interest this Mark McGuire are Psychedelic Electronic Drones.” Boom!
