Hiss Golden Messenger
The Warhol welcomes Hiss Golden Messenger on a tour supporting Heart Like a Levee, its latest release on Merge Records. Led by singer/songwriter M.C. Taylor and multi-instrumentalist Scott Hirsch, the Durham, NC-based band has drawn comparisons to Bill Callahan and Bonnie Prince Billy by deftly blending elements of country, folk, and sparse blues. Their songs are underpinned by the earnest lyrics of Taylor, who also lectures on folklore, authors the blog The Old Straight Track, and has contributed to a music education curriculum for Quincy Jones.
