I do have a weakness for acoustic blues guitar, and Tompkins Square (the label that really brought the whole genre into the sunlight with the Imaginational Anthem series) has something really special for people like me. It's a new album by Daniel Bachmann, a steel-string picker under more than a touch of influence from the late, great Jack Rose. It's called Seven Pines, it's out tomorrow, and it's really lovely stuff.

There's a nice long interview with Bachman (who settled in Philly) at Philadelphia Weekly.
