Guitar prodigy and all-around nice guy Daniel Bachman closes out my posts for 2013, as he deserves to. This prolific young artist, who we first experienced at Hopscotch earlier this year, has been cranking out stunning solo guitar records at a breakneck pace, with the understated genius of Jesus, I’m A Sinner hitting shelves via Tompkins Square this year and another LP forthcoming on Asheville, NC imprint Bathetic Records in early-mid-2014. Based on some of his recent live sets, there seems to be yet more material at the ready for after that. This set previewed a bunch of the forthcoming record, and even gave Bachman a chance to do an extra-long set due to the disappearance of the night’s headliner. We were more than OK with that, as Daniel busted out some long songs to stretch it out, including “Copperhead” and his just-for-this-night mashup of “Blenheim” and “We Would Be Building”, which is streaming below. Daniel deserves your love and your ears, and we hope you dig it.
I recorded this set with a soundboard feed and Schoeps MK4V cardiod microphones. Other than some occasional HVAC noise in the audience mics, the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
