OM is a trio consisting of Al Cisneros, Emil Amos, and Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe.

Where GOD IS GOOD was the first step in a more ornate and sophisticated direction for OM, ADVAITIC SONGS achieves a level of composition that would’ve been impossible to foresee.

There remains the singularity of purpose that is the core of all OM records, but no single reason can account for this comprehensive nature of their evolution.

On this album the core primary sound of OM remains, yet everything reaches further and becomes more of itself. Whatever drone-doom camp that OM had

previously been placed in has been decimated by the sheer imagination and expansive quality of this recording. For a band that has continually followed its

own course, and stood alone in its sound and approach, ADVAITIC SONGS for certain, is the band’s most focused, progressive document.

The concert that is being performed by OM, Six Organs of Admittance and Marsupious at Sister (407 Central Ave. NW) on Thursday, April 26, represents, in many ways, the best of Burque—and therefore must be seen and heard in order to be properly reckoned. Al Cisneros, the visionary metallic musical genius generally behind OM—as well as preexisting project Sleep—lives right here in Burque and stares out his window at the same looming mountains that some of us do. When he gazes onto the mesa, he can hear the wind howl. I believe you can hear all that through his music, but you better find out for yourself. OM represents both an evolution toward and a serious, sacred digression from the head-banging variety of stoner rock classicism; 2012’s Advaitic Songs remains both reference and rocked out raison d'être. And if you’ve never heard Sleep’s Dopesmoker, then you may never make it to the holy mountain after all. Six Organs of Admittance, the noise project of multi-instrumentalist Ben Chasny, has worked with OM before, notably on an eponymous split back in 2006. With Burque’s heaviest from among the heavyweight groove metal/prog-rock division, Marsupious, opening, this should be a concert that Mr. Spock would find “fascinating.” But you, humans will probably just rock the fuck out. 8pm • $15 • 21+.
