Daniel Bachman: August 19, 2018 Trans-Pecos

November 12, 2018
By

Daniel Bachman’s latest album, The Morning Star, opens with the side-long “Invocation” (wonderfully captured live at Hopscotch back in September) and weaves its way through two LPs worth of solo guitar, drones, field recordings, and found sounds. It’s an expansion of the palette he’s been mining since Orange County Serenade, but here Bachman’s style tips more towards ambient/drone music than he has in the past. However aside from that Hopscotch performance, Bachman is very much still doing solo guitar performances. This set recorded at Trans-Pecos back in August finds Bachman playing “Sycamore City,” “Song For the Setting Sun IV,” and “New Moon” from The Morning Star, plus “The Flower Tree” and “Wine and Peanuts” from his 2016 self-titled LP. He rounds out the originals with a few deep covers you may know: “Beautiful Eyes of Virgina” by Lemuel Turner, “Steamboat Gwine Round Da Bend” by John Fahey, and “Weary Lonesome Blues” by Roy Harvey and Leonard Copeland.

    Fantastic show, and a crystal clear recording, great job. Also a reminder just in time to get my copy of Morning Star before they run out.
    Daniel Bachman is such a star. So modest but thoughtful and deeply creative and inquiring. That modesty is also courage, because as you suggest he can often efface his technical prowess in the search for the centre of the music, and it takes a leap of faith to believe that your audience will follow you there. As you say, they do. I hope he’s back in the UK soon.
