Crooked Fingers

Add Date: October 11 

Artist: Crooked Fingers 

Album: Breaks in the Armor 

Label: Merge 

Genre: Rock 

Comments: Indie rock enthusiasts and connoisseurs cried a lot in 1998 when Archers of Loaf disbanded. Thankfully, Eric Bachmann was not done with his musical career, and he decided to record under the name Crooked Fingers. With six albums finished, the last being this one, Bachmann still writes with his trademark earnest fervor and desperation. The indie rock avoids all of the traps of others (a generic and sell-out sound) and accomplishes a subtle intimacy and accessibility, which make Breaks in the Armor enjoyable and intriguing. Start with "Typhoon" and "Bad Blood".
