What Are The Roots That Clutch

Helen Scarsdale Agency
MP3 $9.90

07/10/2012

 


PATRICK MCGINLEY’s first full album in nearly five years marks an elegant continuation of We Share A Shadow. Field recordings and abstractions overlap and crosshatch into acousmatic passages with ghostly, half-melodic qualities. Two unprocessed recordings are impossibly complex in their accretions of sound. McGinley’s composed pieces embrace lithe, mysterious drones whose mossy, damp atmosphere perfectly situate with tactile crunches and events, and signal noise generation. Eels and leaches would not be out of place in such an environment; but the subaquatic murk snaps into a hallowed manifestation of ritualized minimalism at the album’s finale—one that LaMonte Young and Angus Maclise might have conjured in 1968 with clattering percussive elements and a hypnotic blur of harmonic drone. Letterpress artwork. Edition of 400.
