Six Organs Of Admittance UK/North America

E-mail Print PDF

Six Organs Of Admittance return in February 2017 with a new album, for what is the first acoustic led record since 2011. When we last checked in, Ben Chasny was experimenting and evolving his incredibly detailed Hexadic system. On Burning The Threshold he evolves again…

There's something different this time around, albeit a subtle shift, shards of light appear where darker vibes once lingered, and there's optimism in the guitar playing where minor chord melodies once thrived. Yet the sense of mischief and wonder which has always encompassed the music remains strong, the fluid and dexterous musicianship, warmly familiar, and there's no question, this dark heart still beats on…

Those who scratch the surface will find an abundance of hidden detail rooted into lyrics, phrases, and embedded in the themes of individual songs. Each song has its own distinct story of origin, inspiration foraged from a specific selection of writers, theorists, philosophers and other musicians. Writer Wallace Stevens worthy of mention for his significant influence throughout the record (something that we can extrapolate on further). There's also a bounty of musical alchemists who appear on Burning The Threshold from Riley Walker, Alex Nielson, Chris Corsano, Damon & Naomi, and Hayley Fohr.

Burning The Threshold offers further continuity to an exemplary body of work amassed over the years. It is also a window into the mind of a compelling musician when he lets the light in. Pure magic.
