Sophisticated stuff, all of it, and it's amply on display via Barchords, the new Bahamas album on Brushfire Records.South by Southwest music conference, Jurvanen's performance was delightfully informal, featuring the guitarist, a percussionist (take a look at his instrument!), and two superb backing vocalists whose overall contributions were a wonder to hear.
Jurvanen is sharp--an interesting interview with an equally interesting musical pedigree--but above all else, his music is one compelling listen. Check it out for yourself.
