Tyler Lewis Hiss Golden Messenger is a well-oiled machine of a band; what makes them exceptional is the songwriting of the primary artist - MC Taylor. All of their records are great, and this one's a gem. Favorite track: Heart Like a Levee.

Marcus David This is what Gram Parsons was talking about when he coined the term "Cosmic American Music." M.C. Taylor & co. know how to get from Appalachia to the Delta to Laurel Canyon in a single drive. Favorite track: Biloxi.
