Roadkill Ghost Choir Announce Debut Album, “In Tongues”, Share “A Blow To The Head”


Deland, FL’s favorite indie-folkers Roadkill Ghost Choir recently shared the first taste of their debut LP In Tongues (out 8/19), in the form of the ghostly track “A Blow To The Head”. On the strength of only a (excellent) five song EP entitled Quiet Light, the band has made quite a rumbling in indie music circles, playing Letterman earlier this year and heading out to the Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Electric Forest festivals this summer. The band is one of my favorite up and comers, and I’ve often told people their experimental-folk sound is akin to a folk-rock outfit running into My Morning Jacket and Radiohead on a dusty road in the South. Dig what that sounds like below:

In Tongues was produced by Doug Boehm (Dr. Dog, Tokyo Police Club) and recorded in Athens, GA and the band’s hometown of Deland. 2014 figures to be a huge year for the band, and they’ve announced the first round of dates in support of the new record. Check out those and the tracklisting for In Tongues below, along with the video for their gorgeous song “Bird In My Window”.
