Virginia-born guitar player Daniel Bachman will follow up last year’s Jesus I’m a Sinner LP with a new album called Orange Co. Serenade, out this spring via Bathetic Records. The first preview of Bachman’s latest “psychedelic appalachia” compositions comes with a video for “Little Lady Blues,” filmed in his hometown of Fredricksburg, VA by Jesse Sheppard.
The clip shows Bachman mastering the rarer form of his playing, using a lap guitar to convey the tension and beautiful intricacies of the traditional music style. Transitioning from a jangling and melodic opening to a sparser, pulsing second movement, “Little Lady Blues” immediately transports the listener to the slower, hotter days of summer in the south. Bachman will be returning to his former stomping grounds of Philadelphia to kick off a month long tour at the Random Tea Room on April 15th; tickets and information can be found here.
