Tongue Depressor – In the Quarter Column LP (Pre-Order)

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.

We are excited to be releasing their first music on LP to the world! June 4th is the release date and pre-orders will go out early so you should have them in hand by then!
Pre-Order is up now on our Big Cartel page here. 

You can hear a preview / teaser track here:

“In another time, Tongue Depressor’s ethereal tunings set into motion an unstable peace. With their bows, the duo conjured spirits to settle serpents. In another time, it was enough. “In the Quarter Column” showcases Tongue Depressor’s progression into an exploratory and singular craft, balancing technical ability with discipline, and magnetism with precision.

“Everyone Was There” features Tongue Depressor’s first use of magnetic tape loops, with Rowden manipulating recordings of Birdsey’s playing while Birdsey bows his lap steel in accompaniment. The hypnotic piece delicately reminds us that what has come before will come again, bringing decay and dislocation. Warbly echoes of what is past are present. The duo’s preferred territory exists outside of time.

On the B side, “A Singing,” Birdsey’s resolute playing of a microtonal organ merges with the moans and sighs of Rowden’s bass to illustrate a fresh lucidity that is patient and attentive. Demystification has disconnected the doors.

Grasping sound and experience from within, “In the Quarter Column” builds an apparitional world for the listener to inhabit. Once again, Tongue Depressor offers anyone with the ability and will to listen a very generous gift.” – Jason Filer (Crazy Doberman, Doberman, Gateway)

This is an edition of 312 records pressed at Burlington Record Plant on Black Smog vinyl (appears black until held up to the light).

The official release date is June 4th. Pre-orders ship well in advance of release.

RSD Quantity Disclaimer: As much as we’d like to have every possible thing on hand in quantities exactly matching the demand it just can’t work that way. We order a tremendous amount as do many other stores. We are allocated certain amounts of things and ultimately we get a lot because we put in the leg work. That said, we get less than we order and in some cases we miss out on items completely (trust us, it’s not purposeful by any stretch). We want everyone to be happy in the end so be excellent to each other.

Regarding Black Friday Record Store Day Items:
As much as we’d like to have every possible thing on hand in quantities exactly matching the demand it just can’t work that way. We order a tremendous amount as do many other stores. We are allocated certain amounts of things and ultimately we get a lot because we put in the leg work. That said, we get less than we order and in some cases we miss out on items completely (trust us, it’s not purposeful by any stretch). We’ll also invariably get some things late; we’ll do our best to let everyone know using our social medias about those. We want everyone to be happy in the end so be excellent to each other.

Parking can be an issue as well. If you’re parking in our lot please leave the spaces against the building empty (for the other stores and employees). If your bumper is up against a wall you’re in the wrong spot, basically.  Plenty of parking exists across the lot and in adjacent lots.  Here’s a quick map (there won’t be food trucks so you can also park in that area – this map is from April’s RSD event):

We put a quick Instagram video together about the orientation of the store on Friday (if you’ve been here on any of our previous big events you’ll recognize it. Enter through the back. Exit out  the front.):
