Eric Bachmann

Eric Bachmann

Former leader of Archers Of Loaf (defunct since 1998) who is currently recording with Crooked Fingers (basically himself and a rotating line-up). He also released his first solo album on Saddle Creek in 2006.

He was also one of the musicians to accompany Micah P. Hinson, for his album "Micah P. Hinson And The Opera Circuit". In which he played the Saxophone. He also arranged most of the orchestral pieces (strings) on three of Micah's albums.

A Hawk And A Hacksaw

Musical project from Albuquerque, New Mexico led by Jeremy Barnes, who spent a few years as drummer extraordinaire for Neutral Milk Hotel. Barnes creates a playfully gothic atmosphere with his multi-layered, frantic compositions. Mixing field recordings with accordion, piano and bursts of drunken choruses, he generates a singular and unnerving orchestral whole. A song's direction can hinge on a dog's bark or a phone ringing, while cacophony and sweet, hymn-like harmonies cohabit in entertainingly unexpected passages. Influenced by everything from Eastern European folk music to Pierre Schaeffer to Spike Jones & His City Slickers, there's a healthy disregard for boundaries at play.
