Six Organs of Admittance - Companion Rises LPDrag City Records
An amazing new creature from the Six Organs sound-lab! Ben Chasny mixes synths and digital processing techniques with his spacey guitar folk to lift his song-craft further out, while bringing it strangely full circle at the same time, sounding at times like "Dark Noontide"-era 6OOA and other times likes something all-new! Exquisitely arranged and rich with harmonic exploration, the album presents a handful of folk-tales whose theme can best be stated as "Stellar-Gnostic." Sci-folk in the right place at the right time for the new decade.
