In that wait for the new M Ward album, comes canadian counterpart Bahamas, who manages to bring life to the same style of aged old country soul. Bahama's new album Barchords, diddles with surf rock, blues and a tiny smidge of motown, but most evidently radio pop, winsome tunes with choirs and hooks. The album is often sparse and atmospheric when it should have already gotten going, but the instrumentation is never frought and breezy like the moniker would suggest. 2011's Pink Strat is also "fucking awesome!" TM.
For Fans of: M Ward, Bill Callahan, Ryan Adams et al.
Top Tracks: Lost in The Light, Caught Me Thinking, Overjoyed
