200 Years

posted December 9th, 2010

Did you ever wonder what would happen if Elisa Ambrogio and Ben Chasny got together and made a record in addition to making out? Sure, they've collaborated on each other's music, with Magik Markers and Six Organs of Admittance, respectively, but it's tough when you don't have a project to call your own. Ever problem solvers, these two have done what everyone had hoped for-- gone along and formed a new band. They call it, 200 Years-- and we call it one of the freshest sounding new bands to hit the scene in the spring of 2011. If you think you know what this'll sound like, think again, missy! You might be in for a super surprise.

Doesn't spring-time seem like an eternity from now, given that winter is just upon us? If you're impatient, you'll be happy to know that the Six Organs of Admittance fan in you (or the fan yet to be in you, for those weird few still in the dark) will be satiated come February, 2011. That's when the latest jem of a Six O jam, Asleep On The Floodplain, comes out to keep you warm down the winter stretch.
