Mark McGuire - Along the Way

Dead Oceans bolstered its experimental music cred this year with the release of Julianna Barwick’s Nepenthe, and now the Indiana label is flexing its electro/ambient muscles a little more with the signing of guitarist Mark McGuire, formerly of electronic trio Emeralds. On Feb. 4, Dead Oceans will release Along the Way, McGuire’s follow-up to 2011’s Get Lost. And it sounds like it’s going to be a little bit different than what we’re used to. A press release describes the album as a “unique vision of modern psychedelia. Using electric and acoustic guitars, a Talkbox, drum machines, a mandolin and lots in between, McGuire conducts a sonic exploration of the inner self.”
