Afie Jurvanen injects a subtle grooviness into Bahamas' smooth soft-pop sound

BUSHFIRE

In stock

For all the acclaim accorded 2009's Pink Strat and 2012's Barchords, it was on his third album under the Bahamas alias that Toronto singer, songwriter and understated guitar hero Afie Jurvanen got the laid-back thing that he does absolutely perfect. The man has always been unapologetically appreciative of the '70s Cali-pop and yacht-rock scenes often invoked in discussions of the Bahamas oeuvre so his longtime home with fellow mellow troubadour Jack Johnson's Brushfire label comes as no surprise - though, truth be told, Jurvanen can sound as much like Nick Drake as he does James Taylor - but the sheer grooviness of tunes  like "Stronger Than That" and "All The Time" make Bahamas Is Afie anything but sleepy. Still the best Bahamas.
