Six Organs Of Admittance - Asleep On The Floodplain: Porritt penalty

Ben Chasny to 25 º work in his discography, which states soon, and two years after delivering that to me is his masterpiece: Luminous Night. The San Francisco is still associated with Drag City, his company talisman, with which publishes Asleep On The Floodplain, the new Six Organs Of Admittance. In the post I wrote earlier this month dedicated to the video in advance of this album, 'Hold But Let Go' (Soundcloud), which Chasny was twisting the avant-folk, folk art that has been showing us in several papers, but I dare say, after listening carefully, here has gone further.

Six Organs Of Admittance - But Hold Let Go by sonsmusica Penalty Porritt post is the title of the review of the record and by that I clarify that Asleep On The Floodplain we could much more fully if we were on substances that expand our channels of perception. The central theme of the album, 'S / Word And Leviathan' (YouTube), 12 minutes and average folk drone that leave you stunned, squares perfectly with the owner.

If you've been with this barrage of mantras and have not come to hear the next thing is that you are one of the acolytes of Ben Chasny and irresistible music. Asleep On The Floodplain Chasny recorded it at home, without the pressure of a studio or a label, which makes it even more authentic.

Allied with Elisa Ambrogio of Magik Markers component, accompanying live long, she works with River Of My Youth, has given birth to ten songs, two of them beautiful miniatures, 'Saint Of Fishermen' and 'Poppies' that apetecería that had more minutes. The sound is what prevails is the acoustic guitar and an instrument that Ben Chasny dominates as a virtuoso, taking tones that seem almost flamenco guitarist.

There is almost no electricity, and when there is to drug with these loops reproduced ad infinitum. The album opens with "Above The Desert've Never Seen ', an instrumental, the tone of a recording of the voice when it appears is used as an instrument, like a chant. The Oriental touch is not something to be surprised, as Six Organs Of Admittance have come often to the sounds of the Far East in his career.

'Light Of The Light' (GoEar) is the advance single, But Hold Let Go, the most accessible of all. A delicate cut, with lyrics entirely spiritual, in tune with the spirituality that exudes everything he touches Ben Chasny. In 'Brilliant Blue Sea Between Us' is an encounter between a harmonium and an electric guitar, which score could be used as a video clip shot in black and white images of a dusty road loss.

'River Of My Youth' (GoEar) begins with a spectral noise as if a beast was lurking. After that first minute back acoustic guitars and the tone oriental, mysterious, if there is the word Tantra. The voices will not only increase the exotic atmosphere. 'A New Name On An Old Cement Bridge' is another exercise in acoustic guitar playing by Chasny.

Asleep On the closed Floodplain with 'Dawn, Running Home', the third issue that clearly hear the voice of Ben Chasny, in this case nothing available. But is the music of Six Organs Of Admittance is not intended to be for everyone.
