listen to a new song from alexei shishkin

alexei shishkindespite only having two songs under his belt, alexei shishkin has firmly attached a nomadic element to his persona.  both “santa cruz” and “goodbye chile,” his latest offering, are odes to former homes: places that bred familiarity but not necessarily contentment.  on “goodbye chile,” shishkin waxes nostalgic (“i was moving slow motion all the time / i was living five miles from the ocean side”) over guitar interjections and stabs of liquid synthesizers, the latter perhaps an allusion to the song’s thematic material.  “goodbye chile” is taken from shishkin’s upcoming cassette for forged artifacts, out in april; take a listen below.
