Six Organs of Admittance
Ascent - DRAG CITY
FILTER Grade: 83%
By Loren Auda Poin on August 21, 2012
Once a raga-spun, one-man vibrational tour of the outer limits of acoustic guitar transcendence, Six Organs of Admittance is now a multi-headed monster, embracing the electric maelstrom with both shredded, calloused hands. Ben Chasny is one of our most gorgeously talented guitarists, and few can create howling gales, calm-rippled eddies or rolling landscapes with the skid of a finger or twist of a knob like him. (Think Lee Ranaldo meets Ravi Shankar.) Beautiful, smoldering, ascending songs.
