Boomkat Product Review:
Ben Chasny’s third album under the Six Organs of Admittance moniker saw the man start to really take steps into the sound he has become known and more recently loved for. Since Drag City took hold of his catalogue, with Sub Pop seeing to his efforts in full-band Comets on Fire, there has been a surge of interest in Chasny’s tempered guitar experimentations, but it’s not without reason. These early recordings on the ever-reliable Holy Mountain label were where he forged his unique style, and they still stand for me as the most interesting parts of his growing catalogue. Using the simplest of means, sometimes guitar alone, Chasny explores his instrument with pride and incredible skill, and in the process creates music that never ceases to amaze me. He manages to both be reverential to predecessors such as John Fahey, Robbie Basho et al and drum up a sound which is at all times his own, something that so many artists never manage – and this I suppose is the reason his music has transcended the niche it emerged from. Fans of Jack Rose and his contemporaries will no doubt have heard Chasny’s work before – but this early collection is among his best and is an utterly essential part of the man’s catalogue.
