  1. Mojo
    Jan 24, 2023
    A meticulous and bold piece of sound art, but one which is rooted in a plaintive local, human response to global catastrophe. [Mar 2023, p.91]
  2. Dec 19, 2022
    Overall, Almanac Behind is perhaps the most successful of Bachman’s “noise records”.
  3. Uncut
    Dec 19, 2022
    Almanac Behind's message rings loud and clear. [Dec 2022, p.25]
  4. Dec 19, 2022
    On his latest album, Almanac Behind, nature takes center stage, sometimes overwhelming the music completely.
  5. The Wire
    Dec 19, 2022
    Bachman probably spent more of Almanac Behind’s production time processing sounds than strumming strings. [Jan 2023, p.61]
