Dean McPhee: Four Stones LP



Four Stones is solo electric guitarist Dean McPhee's third full-length album, a collection of free-flowing instrumentals which combines fluid fingerpicked melodies with atmospheric drones and trance-inducing loops. Four Stones brings together remastered versions of three tracks that were only previously available on a limited edition tape compilations on the Folklore Tapes label (2016) along with two new pieces, "Danse Macabre" and the epic 14-minute "Four Stones" which find Dean using a new kick drum pedal to add a percussive undercurrent to his music. The Folklore Tapes tracks "The Blood Of St. John" -- from Calendar Customs Vol IV: Crown of Light (2016) --, "Rule Of Threes" -- from Lancashire Folklore Tapes Vol 1: Pendle, 1612 (2012) --, and "The Devil's Knell" -- from Folklore Tapes Calendar Customs Vol III: Midwinter Rites and Revelries (2015). Four Stones was mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering. The album cover features a photo by Robin Zahler of The Great Stone of Four Stones in North Yorkshire. The album was recorded live with no overdubs. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500.
