Ba­hamas’ breezy R&B al­bum

Toronto Life - - Cutlure -

On his lat­est al­bum, care­free folk trou­ba­dour Afie Jur­va­nen turns to some un­ex­pected in­flu­ences, in­clud­ing An­der­son Paak’s fes­tive funk and Kanye West’s chaotic rap. He and two mem­bers of D’An­gelo’s band holed up in an L.A. stu­dio to record Earth­tones, a hy­brid of sul­try R&B and Ba­hamas’ sig­na­ture laid-back sound, all bass grooves and breathy har­monies. The night be­fore its re­lease, Jur­va­nen de­buts the slow jams at an un­ortho­dox Massey Hall show—the au­di­to­rium will be empty ex­cept for 150 spa­ces on­stage—that will be recorded and then broad­cast on Sir­iusXM.
