Hiss Golden Messenger’s last album ‘Poor Moon’ saw singer-songwriter MC Taylor’s profile increase dramatically with a positive critical reception and praise from the likes of Sir David of Bowie. He plays weary country/Americana ballads which are cut from a similar cloth as the likes of Wilco, Lambchop or the late great Jason Molina.
The country feel predominates throughout, largely mournful but there are also more lighthearted numbers like ‘Sweet as John Hurt’ with an upbeat bounce that falls somewhere between Willie Nelson and Jim White. If you’re into smooth Americana balladeering with expansive but restrained arrangements, that’s exactly what this is. He’s rather good at it too.
