CHECK STOCK!!! Received an 8.0 rating from Pitchfork. After many years spent as a steadfast and inventive collaborator—not only playing bass and producing four albums with HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER, but in large part forging that band’s sonic signature—multi-instrumentalist, recordist, and audio engineer, SCOTT HIRSCH has finally made a solo album, called Blue Rider Songs. These recordings feature notable, and notably subtle, contributions from JADE HENDRIX (harmony vocals), THOMAS HEYMAN (pedal steel)—Hirsch’s old bandmate from THE COURT AND SPARK; and HGM stalwarts PHIL COOK (organ & harmonica) & MATT DOUGLAS (saxophones), among others. But as a primarily single-artist vision & statement, it does speak to the way that back roads, detours away from or around one’s other, more high-profile creative pursuits, can lead lead to unexpected destinations arguably more compelling than anything the highways could provide. Limited edition of 500 copies.
