After previewing his new album Bahamas Is Afie with his friend Russ a few days ago, Bahamas’ Afie Jurvanen has shared a stream of the entire record, which is due out next Tuesday, August 19. His North American tour will get under way a couple weeks after the release, and Bahamas will play LPR on Wednesday, September 17.
Check out three songs from Bahamas Is Afie below, and head over to Spin.com to stream all 12 tracks. Here’s a quick take on the album from Exclaim.ca:
“The collection begins with the folksy campfire strums of ‘Waves,’ and the tune takes a soulful turn with the entrance of a relaxed groove and backing harmonies. This sets the tone for the chilled-out collection, on which Jurvanen’s guitar work is subtle and tasteful while still exhibiting his raw talent. He employs a fried tone for his slide solo on ‘All the Time,’ while ‘Stronger Than That’ keeps things smooth and slippery, and ‘All Time Favourite’ features nimble acoustic work.”
