Sunlight Disinfectant is Wishnefsky’s 7th solo record.
Inspired by Louis Brandeis’ timeless observation that sunlight is the best disinfectant, Wishnefsky powers up his songwriting searchlight and illuminates the dark corners of our collective imaginations wherein reside the smallest glimmers and flickers of truth.
Lyrically, SD tackles the vicious propensity for flimflam of some among us who would describe day as night and feign marvel at our disbelief.
Musically, SD features Wishnefsky’s trademark blend of electronica and indie rock. Synths mingle with electric guitars while digital textures mesh with organic elements.
Wishnefsky composed, performed, and produced SD.
Ruby Wellen played cello on Arbitrage For Dummies.
Michael James and Wishnefsky mixed SD. So as to set the record straight, Michael may rightly claim responsibility for anything that sounds good in the mixes, whereas Wishnefsky bears full culpability for anything that offends your ears.
Ed Nahin took and manipulated the cover photograph.
You might be interested to learn that after a long hiatus during which Wishnefsky refused to venture forth from his studio/bat-cave/padded cell, he is now performing live with the more-than-able assistance of ex-Jabberwock drummer extraordinaire Dave Rodgers and brilliant bassist R. Matthew Carroll.
