Daniel Bachman :: Daniel Bachman

Daniel Bachman, the self-titled new album from the 26 year-old guitar virtuoso firmly plants itself in the grand tradition of the legendary american primitive masters, John Fahey, Jack Rose, Glenn Jones and Robbie Basho.  Drones and free-meter, ambient tableaus slowly dematerialize into the sharp-focused, pumping, lock-step guitar patterns woven with shimmering, razor-sharp precision that generally characterize his previous offerings.  On DB, Bachman’s experiments with structure and sound incorporate drones and sustained harmonic sonorities into these new pieces, incorporating raga-like passages into his american folk-roots sound.  DB is a beautiful and fascinating collectionof pieces which expand upon, and perhaps arguably defy the more straightforward traditionally pretty sound of his previous release, Rivers.  Daniel Bachman will be performing at Trans Pecos, in Ridgewood, Queens, NYC on November 22.
