Brand new album from the alt-folk act led by guitarist Ben Chasny. After 2009′s sonically dense Luminous Night, Six Organs of Admittance returned to the familiar environs of home recording to sculpt and assemble this batch of jams, freeing himself from the restrictions and deadlines studios might normally impose upon a song. Thus creating a living nest in which this material could grow and breathe, the album took longer to complete but sounds effortless and bright with light. Much of Asleep On the Floodplain draws on imagery from Chasny’s youth, a time spent in Elk River. Sweet, sad and beautiful.
