Six Organs Of Admittance
Six Organs Of Admittance
Six Organs of Admittance as an electric entity is not without precedent. Ben Chasny regularly performs with a full, electric band, often cascades an electric guitar solo in the middle of an acoustic jam, and has recorded entire sides of electric drone. This element goes all the way back to 2002, when a short-lived rock version of Six Organs (with the members of Comets on Fire) toured the West Coast and etched a few demos to tape before moving on. Ten years later, with the idea to record new songs as a full rock band firmly entrenched in his mind, Chasny warped over to Tim Green's Louder Studios with members of Comets as his backing band. He emerged with Ascent, the rollicking realization of the Six Organs full band experience.

No, these aren't those dusty old 2002 moments with the dust blown off. We live today, and so does Six Organs of Admittance! To manipulate the past would change the world forever. Instead, the time line for Ascent occurs on our identical Earth, on the other side of the sun, telescoping the strength and power of that moment in 2002 and it's electri-Six-O after-affects by viewing it through the mind's opera-glass, in the present. From the opening red storm of "Waswasa" to the sentinel strength of "Even If You Knew" and the sensual lilt of "Visions (From Io)," the sound of this Six Organs is that of full-tilt rock band. The fun and fury of electric Six Organs of Admittance is evidenced in every molten groove.

Ascent will reach this Earth via Drag City Records come August 21st.

Limbo as the space between heaven and hell where unblessed babies float, sighing; limbo as the supple-spined Calypsonian dance craze: here exists The Immoralist. Elisa Ambrogio, Magik Markers power front, lyric intelligence, guitar g'rilla, and awkward weirdo, is back (and forth, too) to deposit her first full length solo outing on yer doorstep! The Immoralist lies at the wicked crossroads of Wilson Pickett's electric wail and the sweetest of Wilson Phillips harmonies. A pox on the venal mind too workaday and SEO oriented to pick up the x/y axis what she's putting down!

Exhibiting a new refinement on The Immoralist, Elisa's earliest childhood musical loves- The Poni-Tails, Tiffany, and The Dixie Cups- rise through the haze-n-raze of electric guitar and drums with a pop repercussion previously unexplored by Magik Markers. Glossy melodies, drums that throb with the rhythmic stamp of a celibate sect, and layers of vocals joined in harmony over stark sound-beds engage a whole new quadrant of Starship Ambrogio. Meanwhile, the endocrine hiss of Love's Baby Soft and heart-caught-in-throat emulsion sweats from the tracks, taking Cale's conceit of fear as man's best friend and playing fetch with it.

What if Peter Laughner was a woman, and stayed alive? Geez, I don't know! This mix of humility and hubris, the sadness and direction all at once weave through the album. Here shines the dichotomy of a work that has a sadness, while it's very existence is proof of a joy. The vestigial melancholic glow of this album could not exist without a boundless optimism, so like, what the fuck? Elisa Ambrogio has a solo record coming October 21st, 2014, and it's called The Immoralist is what the fuck.
