ALBUM RELEASE // Mark McGuire ‘Noctilucence’ EP Out Now, Stream Via Pitchfork Advance

mm2 blog

Mark McGuire‘s new EP Noctilucence is out now on vinyl/digital worldwide. The followup to the critically acclaimed Along The Way was written over the past two years between Los Angeles and McGuire’s hometown of Cleveland, OH.

Get Noctilucence now via SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

You can stream the new EP all this week on Pitchfork Advance.

More on the album from Mark:

“‘The term “noctilucence” comes from “noctilucent clouds”, the name given to clouds which, for some reason, emit a brilliant vibrance at night. On this recording we find our subject diving into the electric waters of the night sky, in long drives across the vast deserts of America. It’s a recording about the discovery and understanding of the shadow, entrance to the realm not controlled by the light of day, or the logic of reason. It’s about confronting nocturnal terrors and all of those things that go bump in the night…“Noctilucence” is a deep stare into the infinite eye of the shimmering night sky of the future, and all it holds in its gaze.” – Mark McGuire, 2014

WATCH // Mark McGuire Shares “Noctilucence” Visuals + Ambient Mix Via The Fader

Dive into the mind of Mark McGuire with us. Today via The Fader, Mark has shared visuals for an extended version of “Noctilucence” from his upcoming EP of the same name. Read Mark’s introspective take on the creative process below, and watch the video above or on YouTube.

“Noctilucence is about things becoming vibrant at night, the electricity of the inner life, and listening when you’re the only ears for miles and miles. I do most of my recording and writing at night, as well as much of my interstate traveling for tours and personal journeys. There’s something that seems to come to life in twilight, and my nights have always felt shrouded with ideas and expression. For this song and this album in general, I wanted to channel that energy and pay homage to that presence I’ve felt in every silent, dark movement of shadows, and the electric, fluorescent writings on the wall.” – Mark McGuire

Pre-order Noctilucence now via SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

WATCH // Mark McGuire Shares New “The Human Condition (Song For My Father)” Video Via Noisey, Plays SXSW Next Week

Today Noisey premiered Mark McGuire‘s video for “The Human Condition (Song For My Father)”.

Here’s Mark on the story behind the song and video:
“[it's] about looking at the aspects of yourself that are hard to accept, but cannot be ignored. It’s about the heartbreak and neuroses that lie underneath the rug of all human relationships, and the attempt to resolve and overcome these issues, striving toward personal harmony.

“The song is dedicated to my father, who is an undeniable influence on my chemical makeup, and a huge influence on this album. It contains audio samples of a “celebrity roast” his family held in his honor in 1989. First he is caught off-guard and begins to prepare himself to be roasted, stating “I gotta get that plastic smile on…”

“Like many of our family events of that time, the roast was filmed by my uncle. For the music video I edited together some of the footage from that night; beginning with his entrance and general shock, all the way through dinner and various roasters, including a slideshow done that night by my grandfather, John Ryan McGuire. I also infused images of my family from my album Living with Yourself, a few clips I’ve filmed in the past couple of years, and some stock images of deep space, to further illustrate the cosmic properties of the family unit, and the inner personal temple.”

Mark’s new album Along The Way is out now worldwide. See him perform at SXSW next week with all dates and times here.
