CD: RTZ: Six Organs of Admittance

If you’re looking for a CD to lose yourself in, step right up.

The latest from psych-rock warrior Ben Chasny, AKA “Six Organs,” is full of his trademark guitar blasts, finger-picked ragas, and chanted vocals. Over the course of five epic tracks, he unleashes mind-melting swirls of cascading melodies and lyrical nonsense. Culled from material recorded at the beginning of his career, including the entire “Nightly Trembling” CD which was initially released in a run of 33 copies, the music isn’t nearly as accessible as on later “Six Organs” albums, but there’s enough here to keep you head-tripping for days.
