Bad Debt

The recording project of former hardcore kid M.C. Taylor (see Ex-Ignota) blossomed on this intoxicating self-released set, a voice and an acoustic guitar recorded on a cassette player at his kitchen table in North Carolina in 2010. Many songs got more fully fleshed out on the excellent Poor Moon. Here, his world-weary meditations – on God, demons and, yeah, debt – sound ancient, pulled out of the dirt, yet as immediate as a foreclosure. It’s lean music for lean times.
