A song from the record can be listened to at NPR here.

This record is the first non-hexadic acoustic oriented record since 2011’s Asleep On The Floodplain. It features a few friends throughout the record (Alex Neilson, Chris Corsano, Haley Fohr, Cooper Crain, Damon and Naomi, Ryley Walker).  The acoustic guitar was recorded at Gladtree Studios in Vermont (see below post for photo of the shed I recorded in). The tracks were then taken to Chicago where the record was finished by recording with Cooper Crain (Bitchin Bajas) in a few locations.

We will be having a special record release party on Feb 22nd in London at St Pancras Old Church. Tour dates in the US will follow. Tickets here.

Track Listing –

1. Things As They Are

2. Adoration Song

3. Reservoir

4. Under Fixed Stars

5. Around The Axis

6. Taken By Ascent

7. Threshold Of Light

8. St. Eustace

More thoughts on the record soon. Thank you.

I know I need to update this site more often. I usually can’t think of anything new to put on it. I will maybe try to use it more like a blog, and just post things I find interesting. But here’s a little new info.

First – I will be playing the Big Ears Festival with both Rangda and Six Organs of Admittance in Knoxville, TN next March.

Second – I finished a record. This will be announced in a bit.

Our friend Phil Legard has made a page on his website dedicated to the Hexadic System. We’re honored. The Hexadic project is still full on. I imagine it will continue for the rest of my life, even if music is made during the meantime that is not Hexadic.

Speaking of the Hexadic System and Phil Legard – From Here to Tranquility Volume 7 is a new comp put on on Kim Cascone’s Silent Records. It features a song by David Metcalfe using Six Organs Hexadic material as a source. Kim Cascone is a person definitely worth your time.

As for things I have been interested in lately –

This Northrop Frye lecture series on Bible as Literature is pretty great. Recommended on Twitter by Brent S. Sirota. I know I know, we’re all enlightened atheists that don’t believe in that fairy tale stuff. Still, pretty nice for those of us that never went to Sunday School and want to pick up on some of the threads of western civilization. Donovan Quinn and I are reading Frye’s book on William Blake right now and it’s very, very good. I’d actually put it next to Henry Corbin’s Alone with the Alone in terms of inspiration and books that dive into the importance of the imagination.

During the Rangda tour we listened to this lecture by Sun Ra. It struck me that his ideas of power, language and myth aren’t a million miles away from people like Foucault and Zizek. Sun Ra’s just a lot more fun to listen to. Cool reading list too.

You’ve probably heard by now but VHF and Three Lobed have launched a Jack Rose Reissue campaign that is very much needed. Even Pitchfork likes it.
