SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE
"Shelter From The Ash"
Album: Shelter From The Ash
I had no idea who this band was until last fall. I was having dinner at a friend's house and he put this album on the turntable and I was absolutely stunned by what came out of the speakers. Unfortunately, the first song I heard by them, "Alone With The Alone" is nowhere to be found on the YouTubes, but the title track "Shelter From The Ash" is good too (though I think there are much stronger tracks on the album.)
This is this band's 10th album and I'd never even heard of them prior to that night. It wound up being one of my favorite records of the year last year. I'm happy to know that there will always be incredible music out there for me to discover. You'll never find it all and you'll never even get close to finding it all. Fast forward to January 2008. Six Organs of Admittance is playing The Earl in Atlanta. Tickets are super cheap and 3-4 of my friends are going over. The show is on a not very convenient Monday night. I really wanted to go, but had class on Tuesday. I decided to go the grown up route and skipped the show knowing I had an important class to attend the next day. I get up in the morning to an email from the prof saying class was cancelled for the day. Yeah, that was hard to read. Anyway, the guitar solo in this song is incredible. Enjoy...
