Breezy Dad Rock: Earthtones by Bahamas

2018 has gotten off to a great start in terms of new music and a shining example of this is Bahamas' new LP, Earthtones.

Bahamas is the stage of name of Toronto's own Afie Jurvanen. Earthtones is Jurvanen's 4th record and it's a corker for 50 year old dads like me (even though he is only 36). This album could have easily come out in the year 1973 with its soul dripped 11 magnificent tracks that instantly transport the listener back in time. My first listen to Earthtones made me nostalgic for my old, crappy Realistic brand AM radio that spewed WLS morning, noon and night right next to my bed throughout my childhood.

Here are my two faves off the record.
