about

"Pulling slow on a rain-black road
Now that the rainfall has lifted."

Paradise of Bachelors is pleased to announce the first-ever recorded collaboration between Hiss Golden Messenger and Elephant Micah, the respective musical projects of M.C. Taylor of Durham, North Carolina and Joe O’Connell of southern Indiana, in our estimation two of their generation’s most compelling songwriters and lyricists. Their forthcoming split 7”, scheduled for release on September 4th, 2012, finds these critically lauded artists versioning each other’s compositions and wrestling each other’s angels.

The two songs, both possessively titled, explore related issues of power, domain, submission, and mortality in the aftermath of a heavy rain. Hiss Golden Messenger offers an ambling, mandolin-laced take on “My Cousin’s King”—an ambiguous centerpiece of Elephant Micah’s superb "Louder Than Thou" LP—while Elephant Micah’s abstracted interpretation of “Balthazar’s Song” dilates the bleary donkey’s lament (after Robert Bresson) that opens HGM’s "Bad Debt" and closes "Poor Moon."

The 7” will be available in a limited, hand-numbered edition of 500, featuring kustom kudzu stamps, on September 4, 2012. Pre-order your copy here for $6 + s/h.

For a limited time, add a copy of Hiss Golden Messenger's "Poor Moon" LP (PoB-02) to your pre-order for $20 total + s/h; or throw in a copy of Elephant Micah's "Louder Than Thou" LP (Product of Palmyra) for $24 total + s/h.
