I came across Bahamas, aka Afie Jurvanen, after seeing Will Bryant listening to it on Rdio (the social aspect of Rdio is the best). It stood out to me because of the old style cover photo and text treatment. I can imagine Paul Simon being portrayed in a similar context.
His album really surprised me. My immediate comparison would be a fresher sounding M. Ward, like the album he should have written. I’ve given the album a few listens and I’m looking forward to hearing it more, especially during the summer, sitting in the beach.
