Overlap/Ghostly Release Chris McNamara

Ghostly International and Christopher Willits' Overlap imprint are ganging together for their first collaborative release, a lovely slice of ambient music from Michigan/Ontario-based artist Chris McNamara. Vague Cities is a five-track album that recalls Brian Eno, bvdub's more ambient moments, and even a bit of the Chain Reaction catalog. In keeping with Overlap's experimental mission, the record has been described as a sonic evocation of "snowy Detroit winters or watching a person's daily experience with public transportation slowed down to a more manageable pace," and this description certainly fits. With a long resume behind him, including exhibitions in Rotterdam, London, and elsewhere, McNamara's status will be heightened even more with Vague Cities.

Vague Cities comes out on October 6.

Tracklisting:

01 Trimalchio
02 oooohdear
03 Sleeping Car/Shunting Yard
04 et puis
05 Subsandtaxis (Markus Guentner rmx)
