Daniel Bachman Releases New Single ‘Blues in the Anthropocene’

    Daniel Bachman has shared a new track called ‘Blues in the Anthropocene’, the latest offering from the Virginia guitarist’s forthcoming double LP Axacan. Take a listen below.

    Bachman explained in a statement: “The Anthropocene refers to ‘the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment.’ The track begins at a Potomac River creek bed where Pocahontas was traded for a copper kettle and ends with rain at George Washington’s childhood plantation ‘Ferry Farm’. Mournful guitar ruminations conclude with feedback from the Virginia governor’s first public address concerning Covid-19.”

    Axacan is set for release on May 7 via Three Lobed as part of the label’s 20th anniversary series. Last month, Bachman released the nine-minute single ‘Coronach’.
