Acoustic Shards

Acoustic Shards

Sounds Like: Andy McKee, Nick Drake

Buckethead reaches to the vault from the early ‘90s for solo acoustic recordings of heavy chord progressions. Songs like “Thugs” sound experimental and unfinished while “Serape” twists into a saucy Latin tune. The album is reminiscent of a local coffee shop, with its soothing and somber tone. This softer side of Buckethead is a far cry from his usual ripping electric guitar technique with metal undertones.
