Eric Bachmann "To The Races" Review

I'm the kind of person that loves to listen to folk music in the morning. I have a specific playlist that I put on when my alarm clock rings full of Iron & Wine, Kings of Convenience, and early Bob Dylan. To The Races is the perfect fit for this playlist; it's a fantastic morning album.

It's also deceivingly simple album, most of the songs just include an acoustic guitar and a voice, but it's underlined with a strong sense of melody and a songwriting talent that comes with years of experience. When Bachmann does add other instruments he does it with a sense of subtelity that fits perfectly into the songs. An example is the organ and harmonica in the song "Carrboro Woman" which add to the song without overpowering it. To The Races was released this week on Saddle Creek Records.

and the song "Eric Bachman". Oddly enough.
We could e mail (or whatever else) it to you in the unlikely possibility that you may actually wish to hear it.
