Boomkat Product Review:
Another wonderful long-player from the Helen Scarsdale imprint, this time from sound artist Patrick McGinley, a veteran of Resonance FM. Here McGinley presents a hidden universe fabricated from recontextualised field recordings and stealthy electronic treatments, all of which adds up to an incredible two-part album, full of sonic intrigue that can't help but captivate the listener. "We Share A Shadow continues where Murmer left off with the exceptional Husk album (in collaboration with Jonathan Coleclough), in spiraling his manipulated field recordings as a slow revelation of the environmental sonorities that undeservedly go unnoticed each and every day. Singing frequencies of a bowed piece of metal undulate against a grey tapestry of rain and rasping insects. Golden overtones from shimmering drones quell what agitated textures reside in McGinley's active field recordings, rendering the aggregate sound a nocturnal opiate with considerable potency." Highly recommended.
