Will Oldham first heard Kevin Coyne and Dagmar Krause’s BABBLE record from friends Rich Schuler (the original drummer for Louisville’s King Kong). He became engrossed and enchanted, maybe a little obsessed, to the point where he began to envision covering the entire record from beginning to end. The biggest issue Oldham faced in undertaking this endeavor was that the music required a skilled, emotional, dynamic female singing counterpart, and he hadn’t yet met someone to perfectly fit the bill. He played the record... (read more)

I would receive a manila envelope at certain intervals. the envelopes contained finished works of lyric. completed music-less songs. I was living in the farmhouse that was once Will’s brother Paul’s home and studio. The house was somewhat of a husk of that previous existence placed in a small clearing inside of a 170 acre cornfield. I sought to live here as a come down from what had been the longest tour I...

Beginning at The Highline on August 17th, 6OOA will be performing a string of dates on the west coast with none other than Xasthur and Wino. This is a true melding of the metal minds--all with an acoustic twist! The torched hands of Ben Chasny will emit languid tones and rich wooden moans that will  likely incite nights of  apocalyptic...

In deep Kentucky winter, Will Oldham asked Cheyenne Mize and Emmett Kelly to come to his house and record a four-song EP. The EP was to be called “Chijimi”, after a style of fabric crafted in northern Japan during snowy months. It was just the three of them in the room together, and to Oldham it felt ideal. Why weren’t all recording sessions like this? The sounds of the room were captured by the microphones, the three voices worked very well with each other, the... (read more)
