M.C. Taylor recorded this spiritually devastating, austere antecedent to
the widely celebrated Hiss Golden Messenger albums Haw (2013) and
Poor Moon (2011) direct to a portable cassette recorder at the kitchen
table of his pine-entwined home in rural Piedmont North Carolina
in 2010. It was the dead of winter and the pit of the financial crisis,
a moment when the dire ramifications of debt-in its economic,
political, and personal senses-had assumed a rank immediacy and
terror for many working people around the world, not least of all in
the American South. Taylor, his one-year old boy Elijah sleeping in the
next room, was compelled to chart the sacred valences of debt, doubt,
and family in fresh ways, in the process stripping bare and reinventing
his songwriting idiom.
