Six Organs of Admittance - s/t [121964]

12.00

In 1998 Ben Chasny self-released an LP of his “acoustic based project[ions]” under the name Six Organs of Admittance. The resulting five-song LP is a masterpiece of diverse elements using acoustic and electric guitars, a detuned violin, organ, electronics and koto. The material covers a lot of ground: there’s an acid folk duet, an epic, three-part space suite, and two short concrète-like pieces that entice hidden memories of having bees in your mouth. The final sting is the magnificent chaos of “Race from Vishnu” — a nine-minute raga in which the strings of the acoustic guitar are battled by Chasny who ruthlessly punishes them for their ability to make sound. In addition, Chasny has also included two bonus tracks from an elusive 8-inch lathe-cut that no one has ever seen—or heard.
