Awake on the Internet...Asleep On The Floodplain, Six Organs of Admittance receives 7.8 from Pitchfork

Talk about accolades. Pitchfork.com says some things about Ben Chasny & his Six Organs of Admittance's new album Asleep On The Floodplain ~ calling the group one of "America's best-ever psychedelic syndicates....". But I digress. See what else they have to say:

"7.8"

"…Chasny turns in one of his best pop songs to date, too, "Light of the Light," a hummable little hymn to impermanence."

"…Has (Six Organs of Admittance) been folk rock or freak folk (band), free folk or just plain folk? Asleep on the Floodplain triumphantly answers back none of those. Rather, Chasny has distilled all of his impulses and obsessions-- slow drones and brisk picking, solemn mumbles and cheery riffs, ponderous lyrics, and ruminative instrumentals-- into 43 muted, marvelous minutes."

Of course, here at CTD, we've familiarized ourselves with Mr. Chasny's dulcet tones for some time now - from his releases on Drag City to his releases on Strange Attractors Audio House, we like to think of ourselves as "informed" - DC453 Six Organs of Admittance - Asleep On The Floodplain is available on CD and the ever popular (and more life-enriching) LP format right now.
