Originally released as a digital-only EP, Hiss Golden Messenger’s “Lord I Love the Rain” has been reconstituted as a fully realized long playing album that juxtaposes grainy kitchen table gospel and dusted imaginary sci-fi soundtrack pieces alongside dead-of-night renditions of Michael Hurley’s “The Revenant” and Ronnie Lane’s “Tell Everyone.” “Lord I Love the Rain” is the sound of Hiss Golden Messenger after hours.
Recorded in Pittsboro, Oxford and Durham, North Carolina, LILTR features M.C. Taylor, Scott Hirsch, Terry Lonergan, Bobby Crow, Elijah Lee Taylor and Matt Cunitz. The album was mixed by Scott Hirsch atEcho Magic, Brooklyn, NY, and mastered by Anthony Puglisi at Sentrall West, Los Angeles, CA.
“Lord I Love the Rain” will be released on October 28th, 2012 by Jellyfant in an edition of 600 hand-numbered LPs in Folkways-style paste-on jackets designed by Brendan Greaves, with liner notes by folklorist, curator and guitarist Nathan Salsburg.
