M.C. Taylor’s roots-rock project Hiss Golden Messenger will soon be joining the Merge family with his new album Lateness Of Dancers. Back in June we premiered the lead single “Saturday’s Song” — which became Strand Of Oaks’ pick for Song Of The Summer, btw — and Taylor followed with the intimate “Lucia” video. The newly released “Mahogany Dread” is a full, lush piece of folk rock with echoing guitar plucks floating on the edges and near the end an organ solo that bursts through the rest of the arrangement. Listen to it below.
