Fatima's Hand is West Yorkshire based solo electric guitarist Dean McPhee's second full-length album and the follow up to 2011's critically acclaimed Son of the Black Peace (PTYT 047). Fatima's Hand is a meditative and quietly intense album combining influences from British folk, dub, Moroccan trance and ambient/drone. McPhee's sparse, melodic and echo-laden guitar playing on Fatima's Hand has been compared to Vini Reilly, Fripp & Eno and Loren Connors but his singular approach to the instrument is very much his own. Steve Barker of BBC Radio Lancashire's On the Wire program described Dean as "definitely one of the leading contemporary guitar stylists in the UK, and in the world". Fatima's Hand features cover art by Federico Cortese which is beautifully presented on a matte laminate sleeve.
