during the winter of 02/03, ben chasny sat down for a few late night sessions with wine in glass and recorded these instrumentals using just guitar and voice, and on a few songs some bells. for octavio paz is the first six organs record to draw from the reverberations of a nylon string guitar, resulting in some of the saddest notes yet recorded on any six organs release. stripped of the usual sufi influenced lyrics, this record proves that the spiritual flows freer through the non-delineated form of instrumental sound. side b features a near side long steel string epic that conjures visions of dessert orgies, appalachian witch hunts and the loading of a shotgun to be aimed at the six and twelve string bandits on the horizon…
