KMA2605 Crooked Fingers – Crooked Fingers

Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 8: BMV #8, 3-For-$10 Deal #3 – Crooked Fingers – Crooked Fingers

This is a project from Eric Bachmann, following the end of Archers Of Loaf. It’s a collection of brilliant, singer/songwriter-y late-night tunes that go for the thoughful and the introspective. I hear Wilco (or at least Jeff Tweedy), Pavement, maybe a bit of Tom Waits, some Wrens…  but also his own thing too. And it’s all good. It twangs, it swirls, it has passion and intelligence and care, it holds your ear. I especially liked that there were strings all over this – they elevate the songs. I really enjoyed this. 

Hit It Or Quit It? Big-time Hit.

  1. Archers of Loaf is a pretty cool band name. I think Pinchers of Loaf would be slightly better.


  2. I enjoyed Crooked Fingers more than I did Archers of Loaf. Both great, right enough. I saw Bachmann (billed as Crooked Fingers) support South San Gabriel many years ago – 2005, as he’s just released Dignity and Shame (which is exceptional) – and he was just brilliant. Held the crowd and delivered some damn fine renditions of his songs.

    This is a great album and definitely a good addition to your collection, man.
