HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER – QUIETLY BLOWING IT

MC Taylor (better known as Hiss Golden Messenger) is one of the most consistent indie folk singer-songwriters going right now. Quietly Blowing It, the follow up to 2019’s Grammy-nominated Terms of Surrender, is more of the breathtaking Beatles/Byrds/Dylan-esque songwriting fans have come to expect from Mr. Taylor.

SPLIT SINGLE – AMPLIFICADO

Long before he was the bass player in Bob Mould‘s band, Jason Narducy performed in the Chicago punk band Verboten; a band that would inspire Dave Grohl to pursue music (as detailed in the Foo Fighters documentary, Sonic Highways.)

Many years later, Narducy would release two solid albums as the leader of Verbow in 1997 & 2000, and continued that consistency with two albums from his solo project Split Single in 2014 & 2016. We have now been graced with album number three from Split Single, entitled Amplificado. Enjoy.
