Album Notes
On his latest disk, Guide to Invisibility, Mingo weaves a tapestry composed of texture and sensation. Dark drifts and repurposed slivers of sound form the backdrop of this immersive work. Largely beatless outside of the sinuous pulse of the title track, Guide slides along seamlessly and subconsciously, rich with feeling and well-crafted sound-images. Listening closely reveals Mingo’s usual depth of layering. There’s always a lot going on under the surface, each piece composed of stacked, complementing elements. The closing track, “In This Final Dawn,” is particularly deep, with moody drones and wobbling slashes of sound. Even when he keeps it simple, as in the mournful lament of the beautiful “Long for an End,” there’s much to listen to.

My highlight track here is the aptly named “To Lose Yourself Completely”–a guided meditation through a realm of sharply edged shadow. (And another spot where beats make an small-yet-effective cameo appearance.)

Better for you to experience it than for me to try to describe it further. In fact, you need to experience all of Guide, because after listening to it three times straight through non-stop and without once breaking the surface, it has definitely become a Hypnagogue Highly Recommended CD.
