There might be Six Organs of Admittance, but there will be two discs or three vinyl LPs in the new collection from Ben Chasny, named RTZ after the four-track button called "return-to-zero." (Somewhere, the number five is lonely.)
The box set will include early recordings from splits ("Resurrection"
with the Charlambadies and "Warm Earth, Which I've Been Told" with
Vibracathedral Orchestra and Magic Carpithans), subscription CDs ("You
Can Always See the Sun" from Three Lobed Recordings) and limited
editions ("Nightly Trembling" appeared on a 33-copy run), plus
previously unreleased material and half a dozen Six Organs live
performances which are apparently impossible to find anywhere else.
RTZ will be released via Drag City on Jan. 20.
