Ignatz (From Belgium) & Daniel Bachman (Nc/Va) + Istvan Medgyesi (Cle) says
Come hang with some great folks over guitars and noises. It's KULCHUR!

The sounds of Ignatz come not from George Herriman's brick-hurling mouse, but from a Belgian named Bram Devens; and his take on American folk/blues drops the listener right into a churning, alien lo-fi universe of blurred echoes, distant Appalachian plucking and deep, FX-scarred soundscapes. Despite all the haze and buzz, the ghosts of Blind Willie Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt float above it all with distinct tunes and structure. (Bio by Brian Turner)

On Orange Co. Serenade, Bathetic’s first release from the rising guitar savant Daniel Bachman, we’re introduced to a veritable landscape of winding guitar. Bachman treats his guitar lines and licks in a way that resembles the earth itself, at its most pristine, delicate, yet also primal and overpowering. Pieces move, ascending and descending in the same way that the clouds roll through blue skies, the same way brooks babble down rocky fronts carving their paths in the land.

There’s a solemn, rustic tone to the album, in that it feels classic. It’s cinematic in the way it works, a lost soundtrack to some forgotten Terrence Malick or Win Wenders film. But, really, it’s so much more than that. It’s a beautiful record, not haunting and not engrossing, not overtly melancholic nor pretentious. It’s a record that lasts. Bachman knows his merits behind the guitar and he never falters. (Heathen Harvest)

Cleveland's own dark-folk singing troubadour. His voice is smooth and burred. One of the few guys that can pull off a Townes Van Zandt cover and it not be the best tune in the set.
