RELEASE DAY // Mark McGuire Releases ‘Beyond Belief’ Worldwide

He’s from another planet…” – The 405

a modern Krautrock acolyte following in the footsteps of Manuel Göttsching, expands his typical palette on the new one…” – Resident Advisor

Beyond Belief, Mark McGuire’s second full-length for Dead Oceans, finds him now well on the way of his own trip. Fantastical liner note tales written to accompany and set the stage for his mostly-wordless songs delight and confound. Throughout nine tracks we find an unrelenting drive to refine, build upon, focus and maximize the effect of an already remarkably prolific body of work. Though deservedly known for his virtuosic multitracked guitar playing, McGuire in fact plays every bass / synth / piano note, and every beat on the album himself, his vocals more prominent than ever before. 26 months in the making, the passion going into Beyond Belief is self-evident, and the effect is overwhelming.

The Luyas and Dodos = Doyas?

The Doyas from Bamshakalah on Vimeo.

Our good friends at Belmont Bookings and Bamshakalah! recently caught the Luyas and Dodos at Melkweg in Amsterdam during their tour of Europe together. Watch them onstage together transforming the Luyas song “Tiny Head” into a heady kraut-groove. The Luyas also teamed up with cellist Gasper Claus in Paris on “Canary” and the result is stunning. Check out the video below. The Luyas return to the road in June and July for several festival appearances and a run of shows with Blonde Redhead.
