California based singer-songwriter and musician, Six Organs Of Admittance’s Ben Chasny has announced the release of a new album with his own name. The Intimate Landscape will be out on November 5th via Drag City. According to the press release, KPM Music, the legendary British library music company, extended an offer to Ben to make some songs for their library. Well aware of their history, he immediately agreed.
The field of library music is one that has been celebrated in the public consciousness’ only relatively recently in the long century of record-making, but the influence of such records has been felt for years in the aesthetics of many diverse artists, including several who’ve recorded for Drag City. So it’s a special thing for Drag City, whose appreciation for Ben’s unique artistry has been borne out over a countless variety of releases, to issue this really amazing entry in both the KPM Music tradition and the ever-expanding Ben Chasny/Six Organs of Admittance oeuvre. Ben chose the acoustic guitar for these recordings after considering the width and breadth of possible music he could make for the occasion.
