Six Organs of Admittance

Six Organs of Admittance is the psychedelic folk project of vocalist and guitarist Ben Chasny, who is also a member of Comets on Fire (read my post about them here). Chasny's secret weapon when it comes to songwriting is layering; his tracks are composed of relatively simple instrumental and vocal passages that come together to create dense atmospheres. A prime example is "Bless Your Blood," off of The Sun Awakens. What begins as a simple acoustic guitar progression builds into a swirling expanse of eerie, double-tracked vocals, whispering percussion, and spaced out electric guitar leads. Recommended for anyone who likes Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, or any other grab-a-guitar-and-head-for-the-woods group you can think of.
