SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE
Six Organs of Admittance is basically just one man (but what a man!) - Ben Chasny, along with whomever he ropes in for recording or for shows. This man-band started in 1997 when Ben self- released his first LP in an edition of 400, little dreaming that one day Six Organs of Admittance would sell 37 times as many records. It was just something that was destined to happen - but that was the beginning of the happening.
Over the years, Six Organs of Admittance has had many releases on a variety of labels, most notably Holy Mountain. During this time, Six Organs of Admittance became one of the most infulential sounds in the free world. In 2005, Ben found a home at Drag City and released the landmark album, "School of the Flower". Free jazz ninja drum master Chris Corsano joined Ben and the results were a perfect blend of melody, out-folk, minimalism and noise, getting much critical applause and ending up on year-end best-of-the-year lists by magazines such as Mojo, Wire, and Magnet.
In 2011 we have been graced with an incredible new record, "Asleep on the Floodplain"...Ten portable slabs of home recorded blur-and-ripple (and warble) from a (mostly) acoustic Six Organs. Ben just hangs around with the creatures of the earth and he likes the sounds and transcending the body, that's all. The new new spirituals!
