Ben Chasny – “Water Dragon”
Earlier in the year I discussed the digitizing of the KPM library, giving access to 1000+ instrumental records from the ‘70s label. In tandem the label has also begun reaching out to newer artists like Maston who have crafted new releases for the legendary label. News comes this week that joining the roster will be none other than Ben Chasny, creating a work of guitar instrumentals away from his Six Organs of Admittance banner. The record, titled The Intimate Landscape, aptly looks inward and focuses on Ben’s connection with the guitar “Water Dragon” has a haunted resonance to it, with an almost western tinge, a wilderness desperation that’s paired with Chasny’s wordless harmonizing providing an earthen Om to the track. The record will be made available physically through Drag City as well as KPM and arrives November 5th.
