While dropping Eric Bachman’s name in this earier post I later realized I had yet to feature anything concerning Bachman’s own 2006 release on here. For shame, as To The Races more than deserves it’s own ink on the Drunkard. Recorded solo, in a hotel in North Carlolina’s Outer Banks, To The Races capitalizes on the self-sanctioned isolation Bachman imposed on himself during the writing phase of the album while living out of his car in the pacific northwest in the summer of ’05. Those only familiar with his work with Crooked Fingers and Archers of Loaf should find this solo release an interesting 180 change in direction. Bachman’s sparse and acoustic arrangements work perfectly here.
