I’ve always wanted to go to the Carolinas; never been. We planned it one year, but were stopped in our tracks by a hurricane. North Carolina’s Hiss Golden Messenger have a new album Lateness Of Dancers and are becoming less of a secret that they once were. In ‘Mahogany Dread’, MC Taylor and Scott Hirsch have created lush folk/americana sound that I would have wanted to hear on the streets of Charlotte. The organ solo towards the end brings out the best of the guitar arrangement.
