Hiss Golden Messenger - Quietly Blowing It - CD
"Quietly Blowing It" was written and arranged by M.C. Taylor in his home studio - his 8’x10’ sanctuary packed floor to ceiling with books, records, and old guitars - as he watched the chaotic world spin outside his window.
Between March and June, Taylor wrote and recorded upwards of two dozen songs - in most cases playing all of the instruments himself - before winnowing the collection down and bringing them to the Hiss band. In July, the group of musicians went into Overdub Lane in Durham, NC, for a week, where they recorded "Quietly Blowing It" as an organic unit honed to a fine edge from their years together on the road.
