Six Organs of Admittance: Light of the Light
Yesterday, I saw the video for the Six Organs of Admittance single, "Light of the Light," which was one of the highlights on Ben Chasny's (Mr. Six Organs, himself) last album, Asleep on the Floodplain. A lot of musicians/bands seem to be really into this whole videocassette textured anti-fidelity music video lately. In Chasny's case, I think it works, though. The video looks as sentimental as his music might sound, and the washes of reverb floating off Chasny's guitar seem complimented by the visual's lack of clarity.
The album was reviewed for No Ripcord.
I found the video via Drag City.
