Daniel Bachman returns to Rhizome in support of his first album of new material in two years, the magnificent “The Morning Star”. "The Morning Star" is the product of various change elements directing themselves at Daniel Bachman. First, the months following the recording and mixing of Bachman’s 2016 self-titled album saw him physically move from his multi-year residence in the North Carolina Triangle area back to his native Virginia. Next was the 2016 American presidential election. While not an overtly political album, "The Morning Star" is truly an artist’s personal reflection on the chaotic days and nights in America following the revelation of that election’s results. Lastly, a focused period of listening, reflection, and space to come down off of a heavy few years of touring created a few changes in Bachman’s writing style that took him a period of time to truly feel comfortable with.
Change is natural and change is good. In the case of Daniel Bachman, gone is the player who originally played with such an irrepressible power. "The Morning Star" demonstrates that years have permitted Bachman to grow into a complicated and transfixing performer whose compositions bear a sympathetic ear with few peers.
