Smoke Notes

Paul McLaney continues his musical voyage of discovery with this latest, outstanding offering. It's certainly been an interesting journey so far: his first solo release The Prayer Engine (1998) was followed by two acoustic-driven albums from his full band Gramsci - Permanence (2000) and Object (2001), another solo album (recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studio) The Shadows of Birds Flying Fall Slowly Down the Tall Buildings(2003), before a full-fledged Gramsci 'rock' album Like Stray Voltage (2005), and now, he's back to his solo roots again, acoustic guitar in hand, and with the willing assistance of bass player Richie Pickard, drummer Nick Gaffney, and producer extraordinaire Dale Cotton (aka Conray, and also the man at the desk for the likes of HDU, Dimmer, Mestar and many more...).
Together, they've created an atmosphere and ambience that makes this one of McLaney's most reflective and personal albums yet. Recorded virtually live in the old NZBC studios, McLaney's emotive, distinctive voice and guitar playing are placed way out in front, resulting in a warm, intimate listen.
Adding to the already beautiful songs are the superb string arrangements of Graeme Downes (previously of the Verlaines), which, on tracks like 'Pick up the Pieces' lift the music to a new level, pulling at the heartstrings in only the way beautifully crafted music can. Covering the same sort of emotional and musical ground as Mark Hollis, Jose Gonzalez, or David Gray, Paul McLaney's latest album is an album from a man who has fully discovered his mature musical voice. An excellent release from an outstanding talent.
(And keep an ear out for another change in direction on McLaney's ongoing musical journey, with his new band The Blush Response - an electronic/pop group featuring the combined talents of McLaney, and other Wellington musical luminaries Rhian Sheehan, Module and Raashi Malik). Recommended.
