Ryan Gustafson, The Human Eyes 

When: Thu., Nov. 29, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

In 2009, Ryan Gustafson released Donkey LP, a confident and moody mix of cosmic country-rock that seemed primed to soak up some of the afterglow left by the departure of another area songwriter named Ryan. After limited output and only occasional appearances during the last three years, Gustafson will finally return early next year with Desert, a better-textured and entirely emboldened update on his steely-eyed reflections. Perhaps the welcome rock leanings of Desert have something to do with The Human Eyes, a Carrboro band with a sterling Gustafson-produced debut. Their Guiding Eyes for the Blind mitigates downtrodden lyricism with a measure of danceable zest, Smiths-like shimmer cascading off New Order bass thrum. —Grayson Currin
