Smoke Notes

Paul who has previously been nominated for Best Male Vocalist at the New Zealand Music Awards now releases his first two critically acclaimed albums in a special edition double pack.

With Paul Mclaneys first album Edin, Paul has come close to finding paradise, and to finding himself as a musician. When Gramsci came to a shuddering halt in 2003. A plaintive McLaney was pondering his next move when friends Breaks Co-Op encouraged him to hit the studio. I stripped everything back to the essential: Like, the minimum amount of air that you can push through your throat to make a sound, trying to rid the music of every single inflection that wasnt mine. This is no over-produced album smoothed over with sequences and multiple session takes, Edin is simply a real recording. But what he doesnt need to talk about is the splendid isolation that comes with being a traveller; the solitude and reflective desolation where every thought has a wilderness to roam within and without; the vistas that stretch out across the horizon for an eternity, the landscapes evoked in Edin.

Diamond Side, Paul McLaney's second album on LOOP was recorded in LA with legendary producer/engineer Michael Frondelli (Crowded House, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones).In his own words - "Recording the album in Los Angeles took me out of my comfort zone and made me knuckle down to the task at hand. I felt completely energized to capture performances of these songs that would merit my own investment into them, Lyrics collide with music, they float in music, they pull meaning out of melodies and recognize in them their divine essence. All of the 12 songs on "Diamond Side" are love songs of one form or another. To me the love song is the most perfect form of the songwriting discipline. Love exists in the space between people's words and love songs yearn for the want of another heart to hear them.
