Some kind digital-dwelling folks have started to proclaim the merits of Poor Moon, the new Hiss Golden Messenger album.
The remaining LPs are all assembled and ready to ship, so pre-order and stream here for the next week (check out those bonus EPs for a limited time only), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (proper order page forthcoming), or just wait until after November 1st to find a copy in your local record shop. But these things are moving quickly…
Here’s a generous preview of the record on Play B Sides.

Scroll down here as well for The Liminal’s glowing review of Hiss Golden Messenger–“one of the most surprising acts of the weekend”–at the recent Tusk Festival in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, alongside Rhys Chatham, Chris Forsyth, Alvarius B., Purling Hiss, and other luminaries. Check out a performance from the same UK tour, live at Miss Peapods in Penryn:
Last but not least, Some Velvet Blog cites Poor Moon as its “jaw dropper of the day!” Bruce Warren from WXPN perceptively notes some kinship to J.J. Cale and Tony Joe White. Drop dem jaws!
Thanks be to all ye reviewers. Like Jesse Ed Davis says (sort of), keep ’em coming.
