Danny Barnes’ first collection in six years reworks an album from a decade ago. The Seattle-area resident simply strips songs to their essence on the new recording. “I spend a lot of time developing new contexts like the barnyard electronics aesthetic,” Barnes says. “Get Myself Together was my last acoustic-type recording and I wanted to make something with this record that featured more of my raw acoustic sound, as though I was kind of playing in your living room.” Icing on the cake: Barnes recently won this year’s Steve Martin Excellence in Bluegrass and Banjo winner. “Danny Barnes doesn’t sound like anyone else,” says jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, whose “Big Shoe” closes out the album proper.
