Album Review
The Bawd Of Euphony
Reviewed 2005-03-08 
Easily one of my favorite local bands (on cd that is, live is another story). Six Organs is one guy, Ben Chasny, and his music is a blend of moody-psychedelic-acoustic-raga-folk. Known for layered sonics, acoustic 6 & 12 string guitars, & percussion Six Organ records are beautiful. This record marks Six Organ’s first full studio recording for the major indie label drag City. A little more polished sounded than the older records but still moody and beautiful. Ben even hired on a free jazz drummer on a couple of tracks which marks I think the first time he has used a full drum set on record. This a beautiful record. Play it!

1*** (5:22) Fuck, free jazz drums & organ rumble along intensely for a couple of minutes and then enters the hobbit king Mr. Chasney with a typical six organs serenade. Beautiful!
2 (1:40) kind of upbeat little song. Great acoustic guitar work and verby vocals.
3** (5:36) Tabala sounding rhythm with quick fingered Nick Drake-ish guitar gives way to a Droney six organ’s chant dirge. Epic and moody as hell!
4*** (3:30) Great guitar work with subtle feedback and bass swells. Gets dirtier. Beautiful!
5* (3:54) Hopeful sounding melody with droney background guitar work. Vocal chant floats over top.
6*** (13:30) Standout track. Quick acoustic guitar line is repeated throughout. Other guitars get layered on top, then full on jazz drumming enters and sends the song to another realm
7* (3:12) Cover song of some obscure folk dude. Think Floyd’s Obscure by clouds. Guitar and vocals.
8** (2:58) Gentle guitar melody, beautiful instrumental ending.
