Sunday afternoon at Capital Club 16, Hiss Golden Messenger, or Michael Taylor, visited Raleigh to film an installment of the Simple Music Video Series. He brought along two special guests: Phil & Brad Cook of Megafaun. Earlier this week, Taylor announced that the Cook Brothers would accompany HGM for his set opening for Michael Chapman at The Pinhook Tuesday, June 12. Below is a preview of what folks are in for Tuesday, plus an unreleased HGM song to be included on untitled, upcoming album.
Enjoy "Red Road Natahalia" by Hiss Golden Messenger, accompanied by Phil & Brad Cook. See them Tuesday at The Pinhook with Michael Chapman. The early show starts at 7 p.m. and costs $8.
The purpose of the Independent Weekly's Simple Music Video Series is to capture local and touring musicians who we feel are producing something special. The hope is to capture something very simple in order to mirror the experience of viewing a performance as if you were in a small crowd watching a quiet set. We hope for content of the music to be the primary focus of the series, not multiple camera angles meant to keep the viewer guessing and entertained.
Most bands featured in the series will be a sample of the deep pool of talent in the Triangle, while others will represent some of our touring favorites.
