Tilt At The Wind No More marks the fourth full-length studio album for McMahon under hisWilderness moniker, the follow-up to 2018’sUpside Down Flowers, and his first collection for Nettwerk.
“‘Nobody Tells You When You’re Young’ is about how the most important lessons in life are often unteachable,” shares McMahon. “Despite the best intentions of those who go before us, many of life’s most profound, thrilling, and heartbreaking moments cannot be explained or prepared for. Encountering some of life’s great milestones - fatherhood and marriage, grief and loss, success and failure - I’ve often been struck by the notion that someone should have paved the way for me, only to realize they had, and I just wasn’t listening. That’s what this song is about. It’s not an indictment of youth or maturity, it’s just a simple realization that some things you have to see for yourself.”
Tilt At The Wind No More, produced by recent Grammy Award-winner Jeremy Hatcher (Harry Styles, Maggie Rogers, Lizzo) and Grammy-nominated Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves, K.Flay, Børns), is a nostalgia-driven record, capturing McMahon at a turning point in life (celebrating his 40th birthday and 15 years of marriage, raising a daughter, working through past traumas in therapy, writing a memoir, and more) that simultaneously looks excitedly to the future. The album features 11 big-hearted songs that burst with joy and lessons learned as evidenced by the jubilant radio hit “Stars,” which recently peaked at#34 on the Alternative Radio chart, and the sprawling “Lying On The HoodOf Your Car” along with his other recent singles “Skywriting” (co-written with K.Flay), “VHS,”and “Built To Last.” The previously released tracks off Tilt At The Wind No More have been featured across various DSP playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, The New Alt, Grade A, and Alt NOW, Apple Music’s Breaking Alternative, and Amazon Music’s Alternative Hits and Brand New Music and have received critical support fromConsequence,BrooklynVegan, FLOOD Magazine, Alternative Press, E! News, Entertainment Tonight, idobi Radio and more. See below for the full track listing.
