wanderlust comes crashing back to reality on the opening line of alexei shishkin’s new single, “yucca street,” the title track of his forthcoming sophomore album.  “haven’t made a meaningful connection in years / everyone always disappears or is it me?” he muses after meandering into the song’s foreground, bolstered by warm, home-recorded guitars and an unexpected piano interlude that joyously contrasts an otherwise-downtrodden demeanor.  yucca street is out february 19th via forged artifacts; dig into the title track below.
