Dean McPhee :: Astral Gold

English guitarist Dean McPhee has spent more than a decade now patiently carving out a singular niche for himself. That patience has paid off — there’s really no one else who can create (and sustain) the darkly seductive mood that’s embedded within his work. Astral Gold, McPhee’s first album since 2021, continues to mine that same rich vein, with his luminous, electrified tones spiraling out over steadily looping undercurrents and uncanny percussive accents.
