Shadwick Wilde - Forever Home
Recorded and produced by Ken Coomer (Wilco) at his Cartoon Moon studio in Nashville, TN, the sound of Forever Home pays homage to Wilde’s long term residence in Kentucky, but also reveals a portrait of a wanderer (of locales and genres alike.) The album’s muscular poetry threads Americana sounds with strong post punk and indie rock influences... nodding to Wilde’s nomadic upbringing in Havana, Amsterdam, San Francisco, and Boston.
Forever Home tries to holds space for the tenderness of life’s gifts– connection, music, nature, family– while also embracing the realities of our fragility; coping with the anxiety and depression of living on a suffering planet, and trying to keep a brave face in social landscape that is rapidly deteriorating.
