Title: The Garden of Eternal Life
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Cleveland guitar zoner and Emeralds member Mark McGuire crafts his most beautiful work yet. Delicate strumming to infinity floats in the clouds; acting in an almost medicinal way to provoke good vibes. Dreamy, light elation and nostalgia make each listen feel highly personal. Deep focus wraps you in the warmth of your own memories: subtle and powerful, spiritual and healing. Free your mind from its own constraints. In an edition of 150 tapes with full color art and labels." -Arbor

Title: Off In The Distance
Format: LP
Label: Cylindrical Habitat Modules
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Off In The Distance is a true testament to the brilliance currently seeping out of Clevelands smog-filled pores... One of Mcguires earlier releases, originally presented as a cassette on Chondritic Sound in 2008 and mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin to emphasize and bring out every single nuance and stroke this colossal recording holds. Gorgeous sprays of vast, melancholic guitar build in the classic Mcguire style. Dense, angular drones weave in and out and pull your brain along with them. Thunderous electronics crackle and warp over the lush, subtle melodies that are reverberating and bouncing off each other below. And when the clean guitar comes in on side A, nothing else matters. A perfect album. And really, what else could matter? Edition of 500." - Cylindrical Habitat Modules

"A Young Persons Guide To Mark McGuire collects together some of this Emeralds members best works, previously-released on a number of limited edition CD-Rs and tape releases over the last 4 years.

Title: Get Lost
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"And yet another killer album from the ever-productive Mark McGuire (Emeralds). It just keeps getting better, as he delivers another fine set of tunes in his perfected style. A few more electronic elements than usual and even some voices, but still the unique blend of feel-good riffs, electric and acoustic loops and melodies that just stick in the head. This album is chockablock with short hits and one long jam of blissed-out McGuire ambience. Awesome. Electric and acoustic guitar, vocals, and guitar-synthesizer recorded digitally between June 2010 and July 2011 in Westlake, Ohio and Portland, Oregon. Mixed at Hardbodies, July 2011 by Mark McGuire. Mastered and cut by Helmut Erler at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Photography and art by Mark McGuire, 2011." - Editions Mego.

Title: Living With Yourself
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $20.00
"Mark McGuire operates chiefly as guitarist in the legendary Emeralds; however, he also has racked up an impressive set of solo releases over the last few years (albeit mainly in small- to micro- print runs). Living With Yourself is his new album and Editions Mego hope to meet any demand which may arise from this fine selection of modern crafted guitar tunes. Focusing on his family, early friendships and the problems that inevitably develop through years of knowing someone, it takes McGuires sound even further out, and contains some of his most accomplished songs to-date. The opening track is a fine example of McGuires magical technique of taking a lone acoustic guitar then transforming the track into bliss-out electro wash looping off into the distance. And tracks like "Clouds Rolling In" and "Brain Storm" take off where such McGuire classics as "The Marfa Lights" (which incidentally is planned for a future reissue) left off. While connoisseurs of his sound will find all they desire in here, many superb surprises await around every corner. These are songs that cruise, bubble and rise to the top." - Mego.

Title: The Instinct
Format: 12"
Label: New Images
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
""The Instinct" is part of the journey that takes place on my upcoming album, Along the Way. It is the fire that burns deep in the heart of man, the light by which he sees truth in the sprawling darkness that besets us all. The Instinct begins to set in during the Age of Revealing, when the Architects of Manipulation are discovered and exposed. All of the worlds distractions­the inherent faults of the system to which everyone pledges their life, the false journey on which we are all led­is the sorcery, the anti­magic that has lured the masses away from lives filled with personal meaning or self­fulfillment. The Instinct kicks in, and reminds the individual that by discovering these elements and empowering himself with the clarity of objective, critical thinking, these sorcerers begin to lose their power, and he can win back his psychic sovereignty. This is the astral battle cry that sounds in the deepest thoughts of the individual as he begins to defend the palace of being that is his own consciousness." - ­Mark McGuire

Title: Tidings/Amethyst Waves
Format: CD
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Trying to put the last 15 years of music into context, youd be hard pressed to get anyone to agree on a single thing. If anything, this period has been a collective convergence of all things cool-sounding: naive experimentalism, academic composition, art-rock synthesis, electronic nihilism/flagellation, and, well, everything else. MARK MCGUIRE could muddy anyones interpretation of the contemporary canon with his buddies in the triadic mega-unit, EMERALDS, his collaborative outings in SUN WATCHER and SKYRAMPS (with Daniel "Oneohtrix Point Never" Lopatin), and his prolific, yet well-executed, solo work. "Have you heard his shredability, incomprehensible astral traveling and meditative neutron stasis on any of those solo jams, the dude must be ancient!?" Truth is, Mark Mcguire is a youngin, not a refuge of the 70s. Nor is he mining unfamiliar territory; he produces something old and familiar, yet it sounds so fresh and necessary for today. Originally released as limited edition cassettes and masterfully cleaned up for this definitive release by JAMES PLOTKIN, Tidings/Amethyst Waves finds McGuire packing 60-plus minutes with trance-inducing, melodic guitar intricacies, an occasional wall-of-squall reminiscent of Mizutani riding a thunder horse, and filaments of a drifting stratosphere where organic synthed-out solos are nestled in tight. With this release, Mark McGuire has hatched a true American Euro-vision utilizing major shifts in the music as language paradigm. No joke, this is where Wyld Stallyns is heading in the year 2398 A.G. and Tidings/Amethyst Waves is as essential as anything in the Emeralds catalog. Edition of 1,000." -Weird Forest
