More or more and then some. Try some eclipsed sun for a taste. 2) Macaw’s sole member is Wilson Kemp – an artist, art teacher, and multi-instrumentalist hailing from Washington, DC. With Macaw, Kemp soaks layers of synths with his dream-drenched vocals and a mid-tempo throb shared equally by machine and human drumming.
Kemp is a member of the band Hume and recently opened an exhibit of new murals and large-scale prints entitled Out of the Lull at 410 Goodbuddy Gallery in DC. A beautiful document of Wilson Kemp's synth, percussion and vocal improvisations, Macaw's debut LP, Celadon unveils layer after layer of radiant, wandering bliss. The record features stunning three-layer silk screened illustrations by the artist, translucent blue-green vinyl and a choice between tan or black recycled cardstock jackets. The sprawling nature of the soundscapes mix well with the propulsive beats and a wide range of timbre and sources from Moogs to mallets present an interesting dialog between the organic and electronic. Celadon is a fully realized, beautiful first release and is available online or at shows.
