Mark McGuire “Get Lost”
I couldn’t be more excited by the news that there will be a new Mark McGuire LP this year. Get Lost, which will drop on Sept 27th on the excellent Editions Mego, will be his proper follow up to one of my favorite records of 2010, Living With Yourself. While he did release the great retrospective A Young Person’s Guide to Mark McGuire in 2011, it will be great to see where he goes after an LP as amazing as Living With Yourself. He has released the title track to the record for your listening pleasure at his artist page at the Editions Mego website, which you can find below. It features all of the traits that make McGuire so good. The song is twitchy without being offsetting and pretty without being cheesy. The synths dance around the beat and the melody washes through the haze and into your headphones, with only fuzzy guitar interludes to shake you from the calming daydream that McGuire’s soundscapes inevitably create.
