Good Tunes Tuesday: Bahamas – Christmas Must Be Tonight
If you're feeling overwhelmed (or underwhelmed) by all the Christmas songs lately, we feel ya. However, that doesn't mean you're safe from just one more. This little number from Canadian-born Afie Jurvanen won't make your ears ring with sounds of jingle bells and ho-ho-ho's. This is about as mellow as you can get for a Christmas tune.
If you don’t know who or what Bahamas is…
Bahamas is the solo project of Toronto-based guitarist and musical gun-for-hire Afie Jurvanen. With a carefully trained ear for melody that he’s honed during his time playing with the likes of Feist and Howie Beck, Jurvanen’s solo project has a stripped-down and contemplative sound that focuses on doing more with less, allowing his voice and guitar to do most of the heavy lifting on his quiet indie folk meditations. Bahamas made its album debut in 2009 with Pink Strat, which was nominated for a Juno Award the following year.
