Six Organs Of Admittance / William Tyler 'Parallelogram A La Carte' LP
Mutual influence is always fun to see in action, especially when it is between modern long-form guitar composition greats Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and William Tyler. This volume of Three Lobed Recording’s Parallelogram series allows both artists room to stretch out and breathe. Multi-movement suites have long been a skillful part of the Six Organs of Admittance lexicon. Chasny’s contribution, “Lsha,” expands upon this artistic legacy as it commandingly pulses and moves through its three propulsive phases. Tyler presents two long-form tracks that further cement his unmatched combination of melody and composition. “No Marigolds In The Promised Land” fits into the mold of Tyler’s imaginary audio travelogues, rolling through hills and dales via the mind’s eye. His side is capped off with “Southern Living,” a gorgeous track that features more feedback than your average WT piece but also stands as a highlight within his greater catalog (from a catalog full of high water marks).
