I’d first heard of The Dead Tongues (aka Ryan Gustafson) when he was opening act for Hiss Golden Messenger. I’d spun his albums and came away of a fan his folk Americana blend. Unsung Passage will see the light of day on May 18th via the fine folks at Psychic Hotline.

The ten remarkable songs of Unsung Passage are long-distance distillations of such experiences, of events lived and places seen and pondered and ultimately poured into reflective anthems for our harried times. During “Like a Dream,” a gentle gallop of grinning harmonica and trickling guitar, Gustafson explores the balance of existence from a hillside vantage. He sees the curve of the earth while pondering his need for a paycheck, a moment that eternally pits the banal against the beautiful.
