Song of the Hour: ‘Saturday’s Song’ by Hiss Golden Messenger

If you’ve followed M.C. Taylor’s music for any length of time, you know that he doesn’t really do happiness. Joy, perhaps, but never happiness. For example, the best song from last year’s Haw was called ‘Sufferer’. ‘Saturday’s Song’ announces a shift in Taylor’s aesthetic away from the spare, contemplative affairs his songs have been. ‘Saturday’s Song’ isn’t a banger, per se, but the buoyant guitar and Taylor’s (dare I say) whimsy are infectious. If Saturday to you is a day of rest, a day of sitting back and basking in your family or the outdoors or college football, a day of imbibing (responsibly, though perhaps Taylor isn’t singing about the responsible side of drinking), then Hiss Golden Messenger is here to help you enjoy it to the fullest.
