It can be hard to hear the guitarist Mark McGuire's contribution to his trio Emeralds, at times, but it's there, beneath the squalls of analog synths, bubbling like a clear, mountain spring. His solo work is more guitar-centric, multi-tracking arpeggiated pings and adding teasing layers of delay and effects; it's also more melodic than Emeralds' drone-based work, with unabashedly lyric leads and heartstring-tugging changes. Steve Reich, the Durutti Column and New Age ambient are all reference points, but McGuire's chiming psychedelia is a world unto itself.
