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.
