Six Organs of Admittance "For Octavio Paz" (2003)

The clues are right in front of you.  The band's name clearly signifying spiritual quest, the album's title a nod to artistic aspirations.  For a relatively short album (under 50 minutes), we are moved along a path to transcendence, via acoustic guitar.  The playing is of the post -Fahey variety -- emphasis on drones, and fingerwork.  But very very impressive.
