On his fifth solo guitar LP, Matt LaJoie further ascends toward swirling star masses and an ever-brightening sun. This is effervescent music, bubbling with the sparkling joys of life. Elusive melodies flit between clouds, sharpening the glistening timbres with assuredness and purpose. LaJoie weaves resonant worlds from guitar loops. They sing from the tops of mountains, finding new, unseen pathways to connect the Earth to the heavens. It’s emotional. It’s whimsical. It’s absolutely beautiful.
