Six Organs of Admittance, 'Luminous Night' (Drag City)

Luminous Night
Critical Mass
Label: Drag City

by SPIN Staff

Releasing dungeon-dark freak-folk records since the Clinton era, Six Organs of Admittance's Ben Chasny remains inconsolable even under a new administration. "Cover your wounds in sores," he croaks on "Enemies Before the Light," from his eighth album. While his guitar remains ulceric, songs such as "The Ballad of Charley Harper" stew rather than combust. Incanting dread and portent in monotone and chanting Hare Krishna-like on"Bar-Nasha," Chasny finally lets some light through on closing instrumental "Acteon's Fall."
