Stock Child Wonder – [Knox Fortune]

I have been patiently waiting for a new project from Chicago native Knox Fortune ever since he released Paradise in 2017, but after three long years of waiting, the moment is finally here! Knox Fortune just blessed his growing fanbase with a brand new project titled Stock Child Wonder, and after a few listens through this tape, I am ready to say that it’s easily one of the best projects to come out of Chicago this year. First off, the build-up to this project release was one of the most creative that I’ve seen in a minute, the skits that Knox was executing were hilarious, playing off of the ‘Knox Fortune LLC’ idea. The music itself though is unbelievably good, there are eleven songs on this tracklist that are unique in their own right but somehow flow in perfect cohesion together. I loved all of the songs provided here, but my favorite one was either “Sincerity” or “Gemini”, each for different reasons, but ear-pleasing nonetheless. Knox is one of the most talented artists that Chicago has to offer and he’s a shining star in the alternative music space, I hope that we can all acknowledge his creative genius + give him his flowers while he can smell them.
