Download: Taylor Hollingsworth -- "Damn Boy What's Wrong With You?"
Download: Taylor Hollingsworth -- "Shout It Out"
Download: Taylor Hollingsworth -- "Hard Headed Woman"
A sideman for Maria Taylor and Conor Oberst (he played guitar on Oberst's forthcoming Merge solo debut), Taylor recalls a Johnny Thunders-styled throwback or a Flat Duo Jets-esque shredder. Armed with an arsenal of guitar slinging and grisly, thought-provoking songwriting, this boy-faced wonder echoes the gritty gist of some of the South’s greatest musical traditions. It's a gritty, raw garage record that kills from start to finish.
