About Hiss Golden Messenger

Hiss Golden Messenger consists of North Carolina's M.C. Taylor and a rotating cast of collaborators. 2014's Lateness of Dancers was the band's fifth full-length album and its first for Merge Records. 

Lateness of Dancers was recorded in a tin-roofed barn outside of Hillsborough, North Carolina, and includes many of Taylor's longtime collaborators: Phil and Brad Cook of Megafaun, the guitarist William Tyler, and Taylor's erstwhile recording partner Scott Hirsch

About the Desert Island Supply Co.

The mission of the Desert Island Supply Co. is to give Birmingham-area kids the creative tools they need to explore and document their worlds. We do this by offering storytelling and creative writing programs in area schools as well as after-school creative workshops at our exploration-themed space in Birmingham's Woodlawn neighborhood. 

Since our Kickstarter-assisted grand opening in late 2012, the Desert Island Supply Co. has also emerged as a hub for creative community in Birmingham. We have hosted all sorts of programs and events, including live storytelling, readings and read-a-thons, comedy and theater, dinners and book-release parties, and an annual celebration of Charles Darwin's birthday. Stranded is a new monthly series that celebrates storytelling in music across genres.
