Published Feb 06, 2012Bahamas's 2009 debut album, Pink Strat, earned him no shortage of acclaim, and songwriter Afie Jurvanen even scored a nomination for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize. Now, he's ready to follow it up with his sophomore LP, which has the similarly guitar-centric title of Barchords.
The album arrives on Tuesday (February 7) via Universal/Republic in Canada and on Brushfire Records in the U.S., but you can preview in now right here on Exclaim.ca.
This 12-song collection includes some highlights from his recent live shows. In addition to his usual folksy material, you also hear some pop and blues. And of course, be sure to keep your ears trained to Jurvanen's prodigious yet understated six-string work.
