A couple of years ago I stumbled across a rad release by a dude called piers and totally dug it. It was a handful of beautiful tunes recorded by a guy in his garage (or something) running his guitar through delay pedals until it created washes of heaving noise. I listened to it again recently and decided to try and track the guy down – and I’m pretty sure I found him. And he is now called Muir. Also, I’m pretty sure he was based in Brisbane then and is now based in Melbourne (this is hard-hitting investigative music blogging, so feel free to weigh in on these rumours).
Anyway, under the new nomenclature, Muir/piers has released an equally beautiful guitar-based, ambient-leaning album – and you can name your price for it at his bandcamp page here. Above is closing track ‘Nest’ to give you a taste of what to expect.
