Steve McDonald's U.S. debut, Spinfield features spacious, keyboard-driven pieces that incorporate the artist's rock background and hint at the Celtic elements that prevailed in his future works. Space music and progressive rock influences combine on tracks like "Message from Pegasus" and "Arcturian Sunbird" while "The Eastlander" mixes synth bagpipes and Indian percussion for an appealing cultural fusion. Rhythmic and ambient, Spinfield offers a dynamic version of pop and world-inflected space music.
