Daniel Bachman - Daniel Bachman LPLabel: Three Lobed Recordings
"Guitarist and former wunderkind Daniel Bachman, at 26, can no longer be considered precocious. On even his earliest recordings Bachmans guitar prowess and compositional voice were staggeringly mature. His growth has been continual and, frankly, amazing the ultimate product of this growth, 2015s River, showed a phenomenal level of maturity and, in turn, continued to convert faithful. His new (2016) self-titled album continues that staggering growth in composition, sound, and technique and offers a sort of trapped in amber glimpse of where he presently stands. It is a full and complete collection of truly engrossing songs that sees Bachmans sonic arsenal expand to include elements of drone (generated by all acoustic instruments) and field recordings alongside his ever-present prowess and strength on the acoustic guitar. Daniel Bachman truly is one of modern guitars most dynamic performers. If youre not with him now, his 2016 self-titled album seems to declare, you never were."
