For many Six Organs of Admittance fans, 2012’s Ascent delivered on something they’ve been waiting for a long time: the Six Organs-Comets on Fire record. The long-fabled collaboration—essentially Ben Chasny backed by his Comets bandmates—was originally teased way back in 2009 by Ethan Miller’s Silver Currant blog as “The Lost Electric Six Organs Album.” It featured three demos, all of which would later be recorded for Ascent. The demos themselves would get a limited CD-R/tape release from Silver Current as well. Three years later, Six Organs is back with Hexadic, in which all the songs were composed according to a complex card-based system that I won’t bother trying to explain. (If you want to know more about that go straight to the source and pick up Chasney’s book, The Hexadic System.) Hexadic does two things for Six Organs: it picks up where Ascent leaves off with another electric, high-energy version of the band; and it also completely re-formulates and invigorates the project. For songs that were composed based on a formal system, they downright rock.

Finally making their way to the east coast this April (there was a February west coast tour), this lineup of Six Organs at Baby’s All Right features Andrew Mitchell on bass and Adam Payne on drums. Five songs here are from Hexadic while the balance of the set sees the band drawing from across the Six Organs catalog. The most surprising inclusion is “Black Needle Rhymes” off of 1999’s Dust & Chimes, here re-imagined as a medley with a cover of Coil’s “Fire of the Mind.” “Shelter From the Ash” and “A Thousand Birds” are Six Organs hits if I’ve ever heard one. But my absolute favorite moment in this set is when “Home” (from School of the Flower) segues seamlessly into “Anesthesia” (from Luminous Night). It’s positively chilling.

Baby’s All Right FOH Harrison Fore recorded this set with the house mics and a soundboard feed and I mixed the two sources in post-production, like the Elisa Ambrogio set from the same night. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

Six Organs of Admittance is still on tour with Elisa Ambrogio. Check the dates here.

    Thank you! I couldn’t make Six Organ’s Boston show so this will more than suffice. Looking forward to your upcoming Follakzoid recording too (I hope to catch them in Providence) and several others on your summer schedule. Love your work.

    I might add that I have purchased several artists’ albums, and/or attended their live shows, because I first heard their music here.

    Montreal gig a few nights later was fantastic. 200 Years track was a great bonus. Nice to have a “hard copy” of almost the same set(s). Thank ya!
