Bahamas Shouldn't Be a "Sad Hunk"

Alfie Jurvanen (Bahamas) shouldn't be, and he probably isn't, living in beautiful Nova Scotia and raising a young family. So, perhaps he's a Happy Hunk? Though, I'm not the best at judging my fellow man's sex appeal. But, music on the other hand, I have no problem judging, and I bring my gavel down, hard, on the verdict: guilty. Guilty of twisting the tiniest, fattest, slinkiest, most melodic guitar notes into three to four minute gossamer songs. His soft, half-spoken vocals ground the more delicate song fibres, his voice being the heavy bones as his guitar notes sway in the air like a model's hair on a commercial for Clairol Herbal Essence. 

The fellow artist who comes to mind, easily, as Alfie's overlapping guitars take flight, is Fleetwood Mac alumnus, Lindsay Buckingham. 

Canadian artist, Bahamas, released their latest, Sad Hunk, on October 9 2020.
