Release Date:08/19/2016;Notes:Limited vinyl LP-only pressing. 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 vox), Thomas Heyman (pedal steel), Hirsch's old bandmate The Court And Spark and HGM stalwarts Phil Cook (organ and harmonica) and Matt Douglas (saxophones), among others. But as a primarily single-artist vision and 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 to unexpected destinations arguably more compelling than anything the highways could provide.;Track List:1.
