CHECK STOCK!!! Received a 7.8 rating from Pitchfork. Comprised of ten blissful, primarily acoustic tunes, a delicacy wafts forth from Asleep On The Floodplain, the new album by SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE. After 2009’s sonically dense Luminous Night, BEN CHASNY returned to the familiar environs of home recording to sculpt and assemble this batch of jams, freeing himself from the restrictions and deadlines studios might normally impose upon a song. Thus creating a living nest in which this material could grow and breathe, the album took longer to complete but sounds effortless—and bright with light. Much of Asleep On The Floodplain draws on imagery from Chasny’s youth, a time spent in Elk River. “Dawn, Running Home” remembers sleep-overs in a friend’s tree-fort and the subsequent morning return to Ben’s own house. He wrote “Above a Desert I’ve Never Seen” while bed-ridden for a week. “Hold But Let Go” was meant for a film, but never used. Maintaining Six Organs’ penchant for cameos, ELISA AMBROGIO Magik-ally contributes to “River of My Youth.” The theopoetics of CATHERINE KELLER resonate on “S/Word and Leviathan”; while GASTON BACHELARD’s poetics of reverie are felt throughout the record. No Export to Europe.
