Six Organs of Admittance – Asleep on the Floodplains


Album Information:

Released in 2009 on Drag City Records

Format: LP


Pastoral psychfolk from guitar master Ben Chasney. Here his serene acoustic fingerpicking is occasionally accompanied by harmonium drones and trippy guitar overdubs, but overall the album is extremely sparse and meditative. While most of the album is instrumental, there are a couple of great songs on here featuring introspective lyrics and subdued vocals from Ben, my favorite being “Hold but Let Go”.

Recommended for those peaceful mornings before the caffeine hits your system. Listening to this makes me wish I was asleep on a floodplain somewhere with my acoustic guitar and a book by my side.
