"Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness" by Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness on iTunes

10 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Andrew McMahon, who’d been the guiding voice and songwriter of Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin, goes the solo route as Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. As a cancer survivor, McMahon has an unusually deep connection to the vagaries of life, while the birth of his daughter brought him happiness and inspired the grand radio pop of “Cecilia and the Satellite” with its Bastille-like breakout of "ohs" and "whoas." “All Our Lives,” “Black and White Movies,” and “Driving Through a Dream” capture the otherworldly glitz and glamour of modern pop music. The somber piano-based “See Her on the Weekend” speaks to loved ones missed.

I Have Not Actually Heard The Album Yet

ChomskyTheBear,

And I have little idea of what it entails; however, I am going to extrapolate that it is phenomenal, just based on the absolute truth that Andrew McMahon is a brilliantly kind, talented human being who does little wrong.

So this review should actually be invalid at this moment of writing because it is based on an assumption, but come October 14th, it will be truth.

(Really, iTunes should not allow premature album reviews, but that is a larger issue outside the realm of this review.)

But anyway, buy the album; I am very sure you will enjoy it. Or at the very least, go sample some Everything in Transit tracks by Andrew’s previous band, Jack’s Mannequin, as that album is absolutely, stupendously superb.

And if you have a little extra time, you should check out Andrew’s charity, the Dear Jack Foundation, read his story, and possibly make a donation. It’s really rather worthwhile.

Be well, friends. (Go Andy!)

Amazingly catchy music!

Ethanwatkins,

One you my favorite artists, Andrew never disappoints. The new song are already stuck in my head. Can't wait for the full album release!!

About Andrew McMahon In the Wilderness

For most of the 2000s, pianist and singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon fronted the alt-rock group Something Corporate before segueing into a poppy solo project titled Jack's Mannequin, which featured guest appearances by many of his talented musician friends. In 2013, he released his first collection of music under his own surname, the Pop Underground EP. Maintaining his usual warm, upbeat vibe, this was the first of McMahon's records to rely predominantly on electronics and synthesizers. His full-length debut, released eponymously under the Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness moniker, arrived the following year. McMahon went out on tour with Weezer and Panic! At the Disco during the summer of 2016, and at the conclusion of the tour he released the single "Fire Escape." It was the first taste of his second album, Zombies on Broadway, which arrived in February 2017. ~ Jason Lymangrover
