Six Organs of Admittance introduces The Hexadic System, to release new album on Drag City

It’s an exciting cleanse of palette to hear about the upcoming release from the admirable Ben Chasny with his project Six Organs of Admittance. New album you say? Yeah, dummy — just said that. It’s been two years since his last release, which is his longest break to date, and this one is based on a system of musical composition that Chasny created himself, called The Hexadic System. Refreshing, huh? Good news like this helps me forget about that Jason Feathers album.

Hexadic comes out February 17 on Drag City, and more information will be coming out in the following weeks about how you can practice The Hexadic System at home using a deck of “specially-created cards” and a book on the system itself. The Hexadic System was designed “to free sound and language from rational order and replace calculation with indeterminacy.” Okay, that sounds bonkers, but I’m on board. For now, this system is mysterious and cool, which is something I can’t say for Jason Feathers. You’ve been Gregged!

Hexadic tracklist:

01. The Ram
02. Wax Chance
03. Maximum Hexadic
04. Hesitant Grand Light
05. Hollow River
