I like to think of myself as someone who is pretty up to speed on music; especially for a forty-something suburban dad. But when I stumbled upon Hiss Golden Messenger, a project led by M.C. Taylor & Scott Hirsch, let alone their previous effort The Court & The Spark ; I realized I’m not as cool as I think I am.
Poor Moon came out two years ago and I just recently discovered it. Ever since I did, I have been enamored with them. They play country soul that is equal parts Lambchop and equal parts Van Morrison. As luck would have it, they have a brand new album coming out on April 2nd via Paradise of Bachelors. They are going to be down in Austin for SXSW and are playing at St. David’s on Thursday at 9:50. That is a great place to see a show and I plan on being there.
For now, here is the first track of their upcoming album named Haw. You can find out a whole lot more on the label’s site.
