I just got the new one, DOES IT LOOK LIKE I'M HERE, and it's prettty different and good.

Imaginary Softwoods is still my favorite band related to these guys.

I just discovered them today and I'm pretty sure they're becoming my favorite drone/ambient band. I listened to Emeralds (2009), Solar Bridge, The Overlook and their latest Does It Look Like I'm Here? and they're all fantastic.

I also listened to a McGuire solo album (Language Barrier), very reminiscent of Manuel Gttsching/Ashra, all that kind of progressive electronic of the 70's.

His project Skyramps (with Oneohtrix Point Never) is awesome too.

God, I have not only discovered a great band today but also a whole amazing scene, I'm happy.

Honestly if you like this stuff then you really need to listen to the new Robe./UUUUUU split tape http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ACUDBB2X

It's verrrrry similiar to the Emeralds sound but with more going on. Sorry for the shameless promotion but you know, it's right up the Emeralds alley.

I HIGHLY recommend Klaus' Schulze's "Timewind", from 1975. It's pretty much what all these bands are referencing (careful not to say "ripping off") in their music.

http://www.mediafire.com/?ktzotmmc1zj

Pretty much all his stuff is great, but Timewind is the one. It's probably the best type of solo synth shit I've heard.

That new Emeralds album is kind of a dissapointment.

I dunno about that. They're doing something different than the droney stuff now. They're progressing. I like that. It isn't my favorite but I find it really interesting, some of the songs are really really good.

visited their gig last night in OT301, Amsterdam. Had seen them on Godspeed ATP. This time I was really carried away. Maybe also due to excessive amount of beer due to the delay in starting time.

Ah, I've got a copy of that one , but I don't think it's best by any means. I think Dream Team or A Pocket Full Of Rain are two of my favourites of his.

I'm having a revision break tomorrow night to watch Emeralds in Shoreditch.

Generally, the best McGuire stuff is the songs that are longer (you know, over 10 minutes), where he can really expand and layer. There are some tracks where he will layer 4 or 5 guitars, a mini orchestra of guitars looping.

I'd say his best is his s-t one from last year or Pocket Full of Rain.
