McKowski is pleased to confirm details of his debut solo album: 'Notes From The Boneyard', a new release that arrives courtesy of the Deltasonic label. In anticipation of the record, the Irish songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has unveiled the single "Return of Pygmy Pony". "Return of Pygmy Pony" is one of 10 cinematic tracks, alongside previous single "Lake", that comprise upcoming album 'Notes From The Boneyard'. Envisioning a fictional world known as 'The Boneyard', McKowski's debut will promise a purely instrumental album of atmospheric folk and otherworldly soundscapes to capture your imagination and seep into your soul. Utilising a unique blend of acoustic guitars, strings, analog synths, and electronic toys, Mckowski creates a haunting and evocative journey across its transient 35 minutes. Gifted with the talents of some old allies, 'Notes From The Boneyard' sees guest musicianship from the likes of Steve Wickham (viola), Howe Gelb (guitar), Laura Mcafadden (cello), Dave Murphy (pedal steel), with St Francis Hotel also adding further elements of atmosphere and production. With one foot rooted in a dark woodland and the other foot stepping into unknown territory, the end result is a must-listen for fans of soundtracks, the surreal, or simply those searching for the unexpected. Like the wooden beauty of Angelo Badalementi's 'Straight Story' mixed with the dark synth undertones such as Carpenter-esque Moog; it's the ideal companion for those pensive days and long nocturnal hours. Explaining his vision for the new album, McKowski says: "For me the best stuff comes from that dance between good and evil, light and dark. It's a balancing act. This album started off as a small candle burning, the only bit of light in a vast dark cave. I needed to balance out the dark with some light. The spark of music was the seed, and this record is the first branch of the tree that grew from the fire. In the process I accidentally soundtracked my surroundings in real-time and ended up with this creation. I'm not sure exactly how I would describe it, but if my life was a movie, this would be the soundtrack.'
