Boomkat Product Review:
This latest album from Ben Chasnny finds the Six Organs of Admittance at their most reflective, sculpting a collection of homespun acoustic pieces and offcuts that, for our money, are the best thing yet from this much respected Drag City act. "Eight Condition" starts the album with a roll and a tumble of crashing drums, slowly unravelling into a barely audible, hazy lullaby. Never quite steering wide enough to be considered in any way countrified, "School of the Flower" owes much to the downtrodden, life-affirming singer-songwriter minimalism the likes of Low have made their own over the last decade. These quiet, reflective songs becoming the audible equivalent of low-lit rooms and half-forgotten campfire get-togethers. Beautiful music.
