He releases albums so often that even someone like former Guided by Voices leader Robert Pollard, who is known for his prodigious output, appears downright lazy in comparison. Wilder writes and records songs, literally, as often as people change their clothes. In about three years he has released more than 50 albums and has posted them on his website for free, though you can donate any amount of money you’d like to help his cause.
