Six Organs of Admittance - School of the Flower

2005; 8 tracks

Six Organs of Admittance is an experimental folk band, founded by Ben Chasny, in 1988/northern California. This album is extremely delicate and all the while intense. There are some really nice acoustic parts in this album. Most notable might be the ending track, "Lisboa," which is a very beautiful guitar lullaby. As if that weren't enough, there are also obvious drone/noise influences in this album, ranging from Sunn O))) to Fushitsusha.

"School of the Flower is one of those rare, understated but compulsive collections you'll want to listen to on repeat until it's time to blow out the incense, dump the wine in the sink, and step fuzzy-headed into the imperfect sunlight of the prosaic, but suddenly potentially transcendent world."
