Lateness of Dancers

by Hiss Golden Messenger

Released on Merge Records

The colourful rainbow above the scene on the cover alludes to the subtle positivity that filters through the fifth Hiss Golden Messenger album.  

M.C. Taylor’s gathering of several fellow North Carolinians, including Scott Hirsch (his former band mate in The Court & Spark), has resulted in ten beautiful songs that are easy to get into, yet deep enough to reward some serious repeated listening.  

Lateness of Dancers is a well-balanced, tender mix of guitar, organ and striking Bob Dylan-esque vocals perfectly suited to nothing but sitting back and simply enjoying.
