On September 7, Eric Bachmann returns with No Recover, an album that is both harrowing and beautiful, and whose mellowness can be deceiving. The drunken louts and red devil dawns are a thing of the past now, monuments to a different time. Bachmann, husband and recent father, has some new lenses through which to view the world. But while No Recover is decidedly mellow and reflective, do not mistake it for the work of a relaxed, satisfied songwriter, sitting on some Georgia porch with a stalk of wheat between his lips, gently rocking a cradle with his foot and whistling an old tune.
No, the Eric Bachmann of 2018 seems to view life with a sort of disgruntled maturity and righteous resignation. The album is mostly just him, a classical guitar, some treated rhythm tracks, and otherworldly drop-ins from singer Avery Leigh Draut and guitarist Eric Johnson, Bachmanns old pal from their Archers of Loaf days. Hes got a lot on his mind, only some of it pretty.
His late-summer and autumn tour schedule includes a mix of clubs and living rooms, shared between Canada and the United States; find the show nearest you below!
Eric Bachmanns got a lifetime of experience behind him, and a catalog that runs the gamut from fiery to scary to simply beautiful, sometimes all at once. But No Recover also feels like a new beginning. Heres to another 25 (or more!) years of watching him grow.
SKYLAR GUDASZ - the best singer youve never heard
It takes about three notes, four words and five seconds for Skylar Gudasz to put you into another world on her astonishingly great debut album, Oleander (Daniel 13 Music). The lead-off track, Kick Out the Chair, opens with a surging wave of strings, Gudasz on piano and murmuring the title phrase plus the admonition, Tell the truth to a smog-eyed tragedy of a hero.
Its transporting, all the more so for its accompanying mystery. And now that the 12 songs of Oleander are out in the world, Gudasz cant help but feel a little strange about opening up such deeply private feelings and thoughts.
All of the songs are definitely intimate and intensely personal, she says. I was telling my friend recently how strange it feels to have shared the album now. Like suddenly everyone is in on a secret of mine, one that I didnt realize how tender it would be to tell.
