Throughout this project I have had some preconceptions. It is natural to have preconceptions. This particular preconception is that Six Organs of Admittance (SOA) are a one trick pony of gloomy music for use in horror films.

No.

That is wrong. That is an incorrect preconception. As I listen to Asleep on the Floodplain for the first time,  I now realise the true genius and talent that bely the group SOA. This is a completely different slant to Ascent. In fact in style it is so different it is like asking Elvis to perform Abba. A little more acoustic than Ascent but unmistakably SOA.  Tiny dribbles of Meddle era Floyd and occasional blips of Spirit’s Randy California.

Genius.
