At the invitation of KPM Music, Six Organs of Admittance wizard Ben Chasny stepped behind his acoustic to produce a pristine new set of guitar instrumentals. Is it library music, or deeply personal essays on a formative instrument? Under Ben's fingers we hear it both ways and beyond: The Intimate Landscape is simply beautiful music that spans beyond the limits of folk, ambient and soundtrack music.
On "Six Diamonds," the latest single from The Intimate Landscape, Chasny fuses melancholic acoustic guitar with subtle, plaintive, traces of electric piano and synth in the autumnal air. A sweet nostalgia and longing implied in the melody flash neo-New Age vibes through the bare trees, allowing Ben to lead us down the path less traveled and stay a while.
The Intimate Landscape will be released on vinyl November 5th; until then, stream "Six Diamonds" on your DSP of choice, to your heart's content!
