Gosh does Bahamas make you feel cozy while also making you feel uneasy. It is a strange musical talent to be able to do that and Afie Jurvanen (aka Bahamas) nails it. On his new album, aptly named Bahamas is Afie, said Afie creates lush, melodious music that avoids all of the pit-falls of being just. too. mellow.
His last album Barchords was nominated for a ton of JUNO Awards and made it on the Polaris Music Prize long list. We can only predict that this doozy will do as well if not a whole lot better. What else could you expect from a man who played for years with Feist?
The record comes out in stores and on iTunes on August 19, so make sure you pick up this beauty. But in the meantime, we have you covered with four songs as a little tease.
