SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE

FOR OCTAVIO PAZ

HERMIT HUT


Format: LP
Cata No: HH04
Barcode: 647603404615
Hermit Hut is pleased to announce their first Six Organs Of
Admittance release with remastered For Octavio Paz, on vinyl
for the first time since it’s original pressing of 500 on Time-Lag
records in 2003 (which sold out in 24 hours). This new edition
has been re-mixed and remastered from the original four-track
cassettes to bring out the resonant tones of the acoustic guitars
that were lost in the original transfer (2019 analog-to-digital
technology has come a long way since early 2000 16-bit DAT
machines, remember those?).
For Octavio Paz is considered by many to be a high point
in the early Six Organs of Admittance catalog. Almost wholly
instrumental, it is the only Six Organs record that sounds fully
dedicated to touching the edges of an acoustic finger-style
world that was still quite underground back in the first few years
of the new century.
The songs here utilize a variety of approaches to the acoustic
guitar, both steel string and nylon, solo and overdubbed, but
always in the service of atmosphere. The record ends with a side
long solo steel string piece that sounds equally at home next to
modern guitar players like Tashi Dorji (who released his first LP
on Hermit Hut) as classic American Primitive players such as
Robbie Basho.
When released on CD in 2004, For Octavio Paz earned an 8.0
from Pitchfork who said, “Though they vary from melancholy
to warm memory in between notes, the emotions that Chasny
creates on For Octavio Paz are always stark and imagistic.”

Tracks:

1. Fire On Rain
2. When You Finally Return
3. Memory, Memory, Memory
4. The Night Knows Nothing At All
5. Elk River
6. They Fixed The
Broken Windmill Today
7. Rain On Fire
8. The Acceptance Of Absolute Negation

Press:

Vinyl reissue of classic early album by
experimental folk guitarist Ben Chasny
(Comets On Fire, Rangda)
