Live Video: Crooked Fingers

photo by Victoria Holt

You’d think with his involvement in the recent reunion of Archers of Loaf that Eric Bachmann might set aside his long-running solo project for a while. But no, the ever-prolific songwriter, performer, and producer is actually intertwining his current tour with the iconic 90’s indie rock pioneers with that of his own band, Crooked Fingers. It probably shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise then that this double duty follows Bachmann’s recent time abroad, when he gave up music to live in Taiwan and teach English. Apparently, though, performing is just in his blood and this brief hiatus will read as a blip in his decades-long career. Back with his sixth Crooked Fingers album, Breaks in the Armor (on Merge Records), Bachmann returns to the dark, twisted Americana that he’s crafted so alluringly and presents some of his strongest songs to date. Recently, with full band in tow — featuring guitar and backing vocals by Liz Durrett, bass and Moog by Matt Nelson on bass and Moog, and drums by Jeremy Wheatley — Bachmann also returned to KEXP for another stellar in-studio performance as Crooked Fingers.
