Song of the Week: “The Sun Comes Up a Purple Diamond” by Scott Hirsch

by Douglas Cowie on 1 September 2017

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “The Sun Comes Up a Purple Diamond” by Scott Hirsch:

Scott Hirsch is partly responsible for the evolution of the sound of Hiss Golden Messenger; he played bass and also was the recording engineer for that band for a time. I’m looking forward to hearing him play live at the End of the Road festival this weekend. I hope he brings the saxophonists.
