Tongue Depressor - In The Quarter Column
***Tongue Depressor (New Haven, CT) is the duo of Zach Rowden and Henry Birdsey. They write, improvise, and perform drone-based music with fiddles, pedal steel, lap steel, contrabass, organ, and bells, usually involving microtonal tunings and re-arranged/re-tuned fragments of American church music. In another time, Tongue DepressorÕs ethereal tunings set into motion an unstable peace. With their bows, the duo conjured spirits to settle serpents. ÒIn the Quarter ColumnÓ showcases Tongue DepressorÕs progression into an exploratory and singular craft, balancing technical ability with discipline, and magnetism with precision. This is an edition of 312 records pressed at Burlington Record Plant on Black Smog vinyl (appears black until held up to the light).
