9/10 Brian 28 January 2009
I've wanted to seriously check Six Organs of Admittance for a while now. To drown out the boss muttering curses about our supposedly slack warehouse pulling prowess & general incompetence about town, I've placed our aged, dilapidated headphones on my fatted head to indulge myself in RTZ, a lavish reissue of his 4 track demos and obscure excursions from earlier this century (still feels kinda odd typing that as I kind of grew up at the END of the last century, but who gives a damn..) I'm most taken aback at the fluidity & wonder of these rare/unreleased early gems. The hazy vocals on the first "movement", 'Resurrection', accompanying his lovely long fingers caressing beautifully executed psychedelic folk sounds from his guitar & emitting haunting ambient dronescapes from the ether, are a divine delight sent by fallen angels to tickle our weary minds with the feather of folk. It was one half of a split on the esteemed Time Lag records with Charalambides and sounds utterly flooring. 'Warm Earth....' is taken from a scarce split CD, probably in an edition of 18, hand stitched in Nepal by lepers, I dunno, but this is a proper cosmic beauty, really shamanic & hypnotic, campfire folk realised as serious tribal head musick man. I think what makes this chappie really special is his indulgence in spacerock & ambient textures. As much as I adore the likes of James Blackshaw from a purists point of view, Ben Chasny combines the most divine free folk elements with some seriously shit kicking experimental rock hues, whilst not disappearing up his own sphinx. I've only listened to the first CD on Drag City, not got the time for both heavy segments today (it's on hearty 3xLP too!) but rest assured, we'll all devour this in droves. I'm a new devotee, I feel his presence very strongly and want these blissful squalls of meditative wonderment in my life right now! I'd bag copies now as Drag City are well slack assed at exporting fresh stock over the Atlantic, they take literally MONTHS sometimes.
