Boomkat Product Review:
Dean McPhee follows recordings made at HMP Leicester with his first album in three years; a hauntingly elegiac soundscape inspired by the folklore of Northern England.
One for campfires and nocturnal contemplation, ‘Witch’s Ladder’ appears to lead on from the aforementioned HMP Leicester recordings, sharing it’s title cut between releases. It features McPhee’s fingerpicking style at its lyrical best in five relatively succinct works culminating in the spellbinding 12 minute title piece. Collected, they evoke a solitary state of mind left to its thoughts, which slow burn from the silvery melodies of ‘The Alchemist’ to a gently pealing blooz in ‘The Alder Tree’ and the hash smoke curl of ‘Red Lebanese’, coming to pool in the midnight scaring of ‘Eskdale Path’ and cosmic licks of the title tune evoking clear comparisons with everyone from Loren Connors to Fripp & Eno.
