Six Organs Of Admittance - Asleep On The Floodplain Cover

Transcendental flights of fancy...

Ten more transcendental flights of fancy from Ben Chasny, recorded at home and hinging on his virtuosic Fahey-esque guitar while washes of harmonium and the occasional husky murmur add colour and depth. In much the same way as the compositions sound deceptively simple thanks to their effortless grace and fluidity, so the ideas seeping into them – those of thinkers Catherine Keller and Gaston Bachelard – are more complex than you might at first imagine, making ‘Asleep On The Floodplain’ an album whose surface you can lazily drift upon or one into which you can dive as deep as your lungs will allow.

OFF! - Wasted Years

"Keith Morris and pals bosh out 16 tracks of terse, no-frills hardcore malarkey that makes like the last 30 years never happened."
