Hiss Golden Messenger is the working pseudonym of Jai Lil Diamond of San francisco band The Court and Spark and this is his first official collection of recordings as a solo artist. 'Country Hai East Cotton' is a mixed bag of tunes that takes in elements of Americana, soul, R&B, blues, country and reggae. It's a strange selection of songs that skip and jump genres all over the shop whilst remaining consistent throughout. 'Hey Diamond' is classic Americana in the Iron and Wine/Lambchop tradition, 'Watch Out' is pure pop goodness with a strong Smog-esque vocal melody and 'For the Canonball' is a country tinged reggae number with another great vocal line, a warm and welcoming mix of Lampchop and Prince. Bizarre but true. I'm also hearing pure Fleetwood Mac influences here. I think this will appeal to a ton of folk but it's not easy to pin down. It's got the ambition of a Fleetwood mac and Kate Bush record but it's a limited indie release, very odd. Anyway, good stuff if you like any of the aforementioned artists and styles. Country Hai East Cotton comes lovingly packaged in one of those ace gatefold CD sleeves with beautiful Stumptown printed artwork.
