Artist: BACHMAN, DANIEL
Title: Grey-Black-Green
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
“2015 repress on white vinyl. First vinylization of the 2011 CD-R release, with which Daniel Bachman shucked the performing name hed been using (Sacred Harp) and laid his naked ass on the line. Bachman already sounds like a wizened player here (an image that was solidified when his mug was plastered on the box for Tompkins Squares "Obscure Giants of Acoustic Guitar" trading cards), but he was actually still a babe of the Fredericksburg woods at the time this came out. Regardless, his technique is massive, and his approach to the material -- based on a color-wheel tuning system developed by the late Robbie Basho -- is intense. Recorded onto a boom-box, with a hi-fi quotient of nil, the material here reminds one of what Bill Orcutt might sound like if he decided to play in longer format time-chunks. Theres a wonderful kind of containment to the music -- suggesting deep investigation and improvisation with hermetic knowledge rather than anything constrictive -- which gives this album a sense of spirituality one rarely finds outside the New Age bin. Bachman is a master player, and the evidence of this is apparent even at this relatively early stage of his trajectory. Through constant touring and wood-sheddding, Daniels music has evolved in multiple directions over the intervening years, but Grey-Black-Green remains one of the true and unique high watermarks of his recordings. How great to have it on vinyl at long last. Includes a download code.” - Feeding Tube.

Title: Miscellaneous Ephemera and Other Bullshit
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"First off, the cover. Lets make it clear -- this was totally Daniels idea and is based on the original art for Tony Rices California Album (Rebel SLP-1549, 1975). Why? We cannot say exactly. The album is considered to be in Rices all-time top five. But so what? Who amongst us can claim to have fully plumbed the depths of Bachmans mind? The guy is a genius and those types just have their ways. So shut up about the cover already. This album itself was released under the title Daniel Bachman by an English label -- Lancashire and Somerset -- in 2014. But copies evaporated like moms milk, so heres a sonic jug from which we can all suckle with warm ease. Miscellaneous Ephemera is an amazing record -- filled to the brim with music that extends the concept of acoustic guitar manipulation beyond the range of mere vaseline machine guns. The pieces range from disruptive scrambles and neo-Tuvan throat aktion worthy of late-period Fahey to Kabra-style ragas and the more easily-anticipated particles of primitive guitar brilliance. There is also some adult content on the second side, so radio programmers -- be alert! Bachman has been a growing force in the acoustic underground for a few years now, and this new one really rips a new hole in the side of the styles star-cluster. Join forces with it today. Or else" --Byron Coley, 2015. Edition of 500.

Title: Oh Be Joyful
Format: LP
Label: One Kind Favor
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This is the second full length LP by steel string guitarist Daniel Bachman (who formerly recorded and performed as Sacred Harp). Though young in years, he plays with a technical facility and emotional depth equal to that of the greatest fingerstylists. His discography is already full of strong releases, but this new recording is the first Ive heard to fully capture the intimate beauty that many have witnessed in his live acoustic performances across the country. Authenticity has been a issue that has plagued folk music for much of the 20th century and these days anyone can pick up a style that was previously known only to a few mountainfolk. While Bachmans playing is surely reminiscent of the spiritual searching sound of Robbie Basho, and indeed the spectre of Fahey looms large, he is no Johnny-come-lately. The distinct sound you will hear on this record is inspired by the traditions and lore unique to Fredericksberg, Virginia, also the hometown of Jack Rose (may God watch over his soul). Limited edition one time pressing of 500 copies." -One Kind Favor.
