The Lagniappe Sessions :: Six Organs Of Admittance

For more than two decades, Ben Chasny’s Six Organs of Admittance has taken on many forms, from full-band blowouts to spectral acoustic balladry, from esoteric approaches to free-form explorations. Wherever he goes, he’s always worth following. For his debut Lagniappe Session, Ben has re-imagined three Melvins songs, paying righteous tribute to the long-running Washington state rockers.

Six Organs of Admittance :: For Octavio Paz

One of the great 21st century guitar records – reborn! For Octavio Paz is a captivating collection of intimately spectral six-string (nylon and steel) enigmas. Originally released in 2003 on the influential Time-Lag label, it doesn’t fit neatly into any kinda American Primitive Fahey/Basho worship zone; instead, it’s a beguiling little universe of its own. Ben Chasny has never made anything quite like it since (whether with Six Organs of Admittance or one of his many other projects), which adds to the LP’s special quality.
