Chicago guitarist Bill MacKay has shared the stylish, monochrome video to ‘Powder Mill Park’, a moody guitar instrumental from MacKay’s latest long player, ‘Esker’, released last Friday through Drag City. There’s a charming realness and warmth to both video and song that lend an appeal all of its own.
Although MacKay has been working for years, many were first introduced to him through 2015’s quietly beautiful ‘Land Of Plenty’, an album of mesmeric, meandering instruments recorded with fellow Chicago guitar-warrior Ryley Walker. ‘Esker’, however, is MacKay’s first album of original material released under his own name. Watch the video below and if you like what you see, keep your eyes peeled for our review of ‘Esker’, coming soon.
