McGuire has been kicking around the music scene for a while now and is pretty well-regarded for his drone and ambient work — namely with his other band, Emeralds, which also features Cleveland heavy hitter Sam Goldberg. “Get Lost” finds McGuire on familiar ground, with ambient loops and effect-heavy guitar melodies. While he does stay true to the sound that he’s known for on this new record, it’s much more focused then previous releases. For fans of the rising chill-wave genre, this record will definitely please. It’s hard to say if the record has more of a zoned-out or sucked-in effect, as it is very engaging. While the genre is often considered background music, McGuire has successfully created a soundscape with enough movement to draw a listener’s attention and keep it. Transitions are subtle enough to be seamless, but dynamic at the same time to remain interesting. As a whole “Get Lost” is one of those records where subsequent listens reveal new notes, found buried in the layers of lush sounds and gentle melodies. The record’s title is prophetic: It’s almost impossible to not lose one’s self in the wall of sounds that McGuire has created on this release.
