North Carolina folk-rock duo Hiss Golden Messenger made their TV debut on ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ last night (Nov. 18) with a lively performance of their song, ‘Southern Grammar.’ Watch MC Taylor and Scott Hirsch perform with a full backing band -- complete with backup singers and a horn section -- in the video above.

‘Southern Grammar’ appears on Hiss Golden Messenger’s most recent and fifth studio album, ‘The Lateness of Dancers,’ which landed in September via Merge Records. It follows the twosome’s 2008 debut, ‘Country Hai East Cotton,’ 2010’s ‘Bad Debt,’ 2011’s ‘Poor Man’ and 2013’s ‘Haw.’

‘The Lateness of Dancers’’s rootsy sound and Taylor’s gravely vocals have earned the album plenty of acclaim, which was mirrored by the ‘Late Show’ host, who greeted the rockers and proclaimed, “I’ll tell you, I liked everything about this.”

We did, too, so make sure to grab ‘The Lateness of Dancers’ and Hiss Golden Messenger’s forthcoming 12-inch EP, ‘Southern Grammar’ -- which will include two previously unreleased songs -- when it hits store shelves on Feb. 3.
