The Dead Tongues

In 2016, we've got more folk-rock than we really need or know what to do with. But whereas many bands might seem to be cashing in on a fad, Ryan Gustafson has spent the past several years crafting tremendous songs, whether under his own name or with the band The Dead Tongues. Montana, released in March, is the band's latest shining example. There, Gustafson's picking on both the banjo and guitar is sharp as ever, with those flurries standing front and center on songs like "Empire Builder," "My Companion," and "Stained Glass Eyes." It's an easygoing and ultimately gorgeous record that finds Gustafson blending perfect measures of twangy acoustics with airy Mellotron, all anchored by his contemplative, consuming lyrics. Molly Sarlé, once of the spellbinding trio Mountain Man, opens. Her recent debut set at The Pinhook was strong and charming—you'll find no meek singer-songwriter fluff here. —Allison Hussey
