m c taylor returns with a beautiful new album full of soulful southern americana, a perfect blend of swampy rock, folk & gospel with lush string & horn arrangements.

these are 11 songs about family, faith & an ill-prophesied future that represents hiss golden messenger’s most ambitious & challenging work to date. on the eerie, spiritual, country psych in 'sufferer (love my conqueror)' the melding of taylor's & sonia turner's voices is haunting, beautiful & darkly prophetic. the back-porch flatpicking acoustic guitar ramble that is 'i've got a name for the newborn child' is offset by a shuffling snare that resonates under the hooky chorus. 'devotion' is slow enough to have been played by crazy horse. its loose-tuned drums are the only non-reverbed instrument, as taylor's voice comes wafting from the centre, shimmering electric guitars, a snail-paced bassline & endlessly echoing acoustics surrounding him. sure to appeal to fans of will oldham & lambchop, featuring members of lambchop, megafaun & black twig pickers. “bristly, indelicate, often beautiful but never precious. it bursts with life” - dusted.
