Cheersquad Records & Tapes are delighted to be able to bring to you the debut album ‘Ghost Heroin’ from Melbourne musician Fenn Wilson on vinyl for the first time, complete with brand-new cover art done by Myriam den Elzen. Originally released in November 2019, its vinyl debut will hit the shelves in August 2021.
Fenn Wilson emerges from the burgeoning underground indie folk sound coming out of Melbourne. His debut full-length Ghost Heroin expertly navigates the bumpy road from darkness to catharsis and drew reviews dripping with superlatives.
I can’t get over how good it is. It’s not often the elements of writing, performance; arrangement, orchestration and production coalesce into something you can actually describe as ‘perfect’. This track (Lost My Way) is rare.' Jonathan Alley, Triple R
Expanding on Fenn’s accomplished 2015 EP 'Tales of the Black Dog', which showcased Fenn's rhythmic guitar playing and husky bass-baritone, the material on 'Ghost Heroin' incorporates additional backing such as bass, cello and vocal harmonies. However, Wilson's vocal chops rightfully hog the spotlight throughout this album thanks to producer Shannon Bourne, who was careful to ensure that enough space was left within the arrangements to highlight this artist's extraordinary singing ability. As such, recording sessions for this set of ten tracks took place in stages.
