Durham-based folk duo Hiss Golden Messenger reissued their outstanding 2010 LP Bad Debt this past January, and now, in the spirit of releasing old tracks, they released a single via Merge Records entitled "Brother, Do You Know The Road?"

The song, which the band often plays live but had never released on an LP, brings back recollections of traditional folk songs while maintaining their own style. Vocalist M.C. Taylor sings in a gritty, rough drawl and his question of "Hey brother, do you know the road?" elicits bluesy call-and-response replies. The instrumentation features slide guitar and organ, and creates a classic sounding atmosphere that fits the song's overall theme.

This single is available on iTunes and more information, including news and tour dates can be found on the Paradise Of Bachelors website.
