Danforth Music Hall, November 5
Bahamas is Afie Jurvanen. We knew that already, but on his third album, Bahamas Is Afie (Universal), the Toronto multi-instrumentalist and songwriter spells it out for us.
Jurvanen intended for the album, recorded in Don Kerr’s home studio, to be more traditionally folky, and that comes across in stripped-down acoustic guitar parts, gospel backups and refreshingly intimate vocals.
But he couldn’t resist some sonic experimentation: electric guitar feedback, fun effects and a sprinkle of disco found their way in.
