"August Born is a collaboration between Japan's Hiroyuki Usui and Six Organs of Admittance's Ben Chasny. Well versed 'heads already know Hiroyuki under his alias of L, in which he recorded the subtle psychedelic gem, Holy Letters. Along with spending time in Marble Sheep, he also played drums for Fushitsusha for six years and played in an early incarnation of Ghost, which can be seen on the live DVD, Metamorphosis. Holy Letters was an early template for Six Organs when it was released nearly ten years ago. August Born started off as a game that was based on the idea of 'fortuitous mistranslation.' That is: even if they didn't understand exactly what the other wanted to do or where to go with the song, the songs themselves would find their own direction. The project started with the scraping sounds of a bird being buried. As improbable as it seemed, these sounds eventually created music. August Born is a mellow work seamlessly blending Hiroyuki's guitar, vocals, vibes, harmonium, bass, drums, cello, field recordings, and didgeridoo with Chasny's unmistakable voice and guitar. The tunes found here hold rewards that will only grow with patience and time."
