Burning The Threshold
Not yet reviewed.
In preparing for the first album of non-Hexadic Six Organs of Admittance music since 2012's 'Ascent,' Ben Chasny had a think about what he'd be saying in his own tongue for the first time in a half-decade.
As ever, a head-full of ideas were driving him to think and speak music as a spirituality superimposed onto a reality, with the ghosts of both whispering at each other. In the end, what sits in our listening ears is the sound of communion.
Burning the reshold brings a wealth of Six Organs-styled lightness into one of his sweetest musical meditations yet.
With a spacious acoustic soundstage, Burning the reshold may actually more resemble 2011's Asleep on the Floodplain. Or it may more resemble Compathia, or School of the Flower - but our sense of what is true tells us that nobody plays acoustic music quite like Six Organs of Admittance, and that furthermore, nothing sounds so much like Burning the reshold as 'Burning the Threshold'
