Quietus Mix 13: Ben Chasny Six Organs Of Admittance
Luke Turner , February 24th, 2011 07:38

We celebrate the new Six Organs Of Admittance album with a mix from Ben Chasny

Six Organs Of Admittance have been releasing albums of rolling, psychedelic folk for over a decade now, Ben Chasny quietly and doggedly getting on with things with the minimum of fuss and the maximum reward. This is none more so than on brilliant new LP Asleep On The Floodplain, or the fascinating project Chasny undertook at the Incubate Festival last year, all of which you can read about in the good man Ned Raggett's recent Quietus interview. In fact, Chasny has also taken time to contribute to this august organ, with a controversial Black Sky Thinking on music and technology, and now, number 13 in our mix series. After twelve mixes full of heavy dance music and a lot of Throbbing Gristle-related projects, we sit back and take stock with Chasny's thoughtful journey through folk, psych, experimental and international sounds.
