Last week, WKNC debuted its new online video series, “The Lounge,” with a five-and-a-half-minute performance from rising acoustic guitar star Daniel Bachman. Bachman, who recently relocated to the Triangle, courses through a rendition of “Sarah Anne,” from his just-released fourth LP, Jesus, I’m A Sinner.
His nonchalant performance casts shadows of Piedmont blues and American Primitive slide guitar from a Hawaiian-style lap guitar. The simple, single-camera video gives Bachman’s unhurried playing plenty of space. In other words, the video feels as casual as the performance.
A new episode, featuring Asheville psych-popsmith Jackson Scott, is up now, too.
