The long-awaited reissue of The Dead Tongues' beloved third album, Unsung Passage, a profound reflection on the emotional architecture of love, loneliness, and life at large.
The Dead Tongues is songwriter Ryan Gustafson's long-evolving vehicle for a beautifully fractured vision of folk, country, blues, and cosmic American rock, and Unsung Passage is a first-person reckoning with the things Gustafson, a chronically peripatetic adventurer, has seen enough to sing about. The ten remarkable tracks of Unsung Passageare long-distance distillations of events lived and places seen and pondered and ultimately poured into reflective anthems for our harried times.
The 2023 reissue of Unsung Passage on Golden Hour Yellow Vinyl as a North Carolina Indie Store Exclusive, standard black vinyl, and CD. Pre-orders for this release should ship on August 25, 2023.
The ten remarkable songs of Unsung Passage are long-distance distillations of experiences, of events lived and places seen and pondered and ultimately poured into reflective anthems for our harried times. Gustafson recorded these songs much as they were written-during short summer sojourns away from the road, when he and a quartet of friends could gather in the Chapel Hill studio The Rubber Room for two-day sessions. Longtime North Carolina confidants and collaborators James Wallace, Jeff Crawford, and Casey Toll form the rhythm section, while Mountain Man’s Molly Sarlé harmonizes softly and adds a filigree of unexpected flute. Other friends offer fiddle and percussion, cello and extra guitar, softly padding songs that stand as statements unto themselves.
