    Bahamas Is Afie


    His voice and his guitar playing merge with a lush beauty. - NPR Fresh Air


    A sublime, incomparable leading man, one with a soulful, sweet and stylish touch in his song-writing. - Globe and Mail


    Brushfire Records is set to release the third full-length album from Afie Jurvanen, who performs as Bahamas. The new release, Bahamas
    Is Afie, is the first self-produced album from the Ontario-based musician. With this record he pursued a far more complex sound than on prior releases
    and is responsible for the majority of the instrumentation. The album follows 2011's Barchords, which was praised for being a reserved yet melodically
    rewarding exploration of rewarding exploration of relationships and heartache by The New Yorker.


    SPIN recently premieredAll The Time, the first pre-release track from the album. The first radio single Stronger Than That will go to radio mid-July.
    Jurvanen sought to create and produce a more developed arrangement of strings, brass, winds, orchestral percussion, and chamber choruses on
    Bahamas Is Afie. Prior to this record, Jurvanen's releases have all been sparsely recorded bedroom records with this new album making a transition to a
    more complex and fully arranged collection of music.


    Jurvanen's debut album Pink Strat was released in 2009. The record was nominated for both a Juno Award and the Polaris Music Prize. Bahamas hit the
    road for two years after the release, touring with artists such as Wilco and Robert Plant. In 2011 he released Barchords, which was nominated for two
    Juno Awards including Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Songwriter of The Year and was named Best Singer/Songwriter Album of 2012 by iTunes.
    Wall Street Journal praised the record as bluesy and hypnotic, and The Los Angeles Times called is a delightfully rare kind of record that commands an
    instant replay.

    Barchords

    Bahamas is the moniker for Afie Jurvanen (pronounced AY-fee), a highly sought after musician who spent three years as a guitarist/pianist for Feist among others. Barchords is Bahamas' sophomore album and follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2009 debut Pink Strat which received nominations for a Juno award and a 2010 Polaris Music Prize.


    Much like its predecessor, the 12 songs on Barchords defy simple categorization. Jurvanen's vocal delivery and masterful playing create a distinctive sound that is both subtle and intense. His soulful folk features sparse arrangements where the space is as powerful as the performance, accentuating the impact of the songs.


    From the understated blues of the opening track Lost In The Light to the pop-infused Caught Me Thinking to the classic standard feel of Time and Time Again, the songs on Barchords continue to reveal themselves far beyond the literal interpretation of the lyrics upon first listen.

    Earthtones (Pre-Order)

    Bahamas, the easy-going alias of Toronto-based singer/songwriter Afie Jurvanen, is returning with his first LP in four years. His new album Earthtones will be released via Brushfire/Republic Records, following up his 2014 record Bahamas is Afie.


    Largely recorded in a compact, three-day session, Jurvanen finds himself joined by drummer James Gadson and bassist Pino Palladino, who separately have supported the likes of Beck and John Mayer, and together played alongside D'Angelo for his superlative comeback album, Black Messiah. The inclusion of the Vanguard members illuminates the grounded qualities that have always always been just beneath the surface of Bahamas' breezy music.

    Reckon

    Political. Personal. Poetic. Such is the new album Reckon from one of Canada's most renowned songwriters, Jason Collett. Recorded at Revolution Recording Studios in Toronto, the album was produced by Howie Beck and includes guest appearances by Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas), Basia Bulat, Kevin Drew and Zeus. An 11-song retrospective titled Essential Cuts will be released as a companion to Reckon as a digital download in the vinyl package. Chosen by Jason himself Essential Cuts represent the sense of community that he has always held in such high regard.


    There is a poetic serendipity to the fact that Jason Collett started recording Reckon during the same month that Occupy Wall Street began. Not necessarily setting out to make a record with these overtones, his travels and political engagements lead to the subject matter being unavoidable. "The consistent thread throughout this record is loss," he explains. "The love songs are largely emotive reflections of the 'political' songs. All written through the distillation of events since the economic calamity of 2008 and it's insidiously long looming shadow. I've seen first hand the kind of devastation this crisis has wrecked upon much of the world I've toured these last few years. The shut-down-shops and foreclosed homes on the suburban fringes as I've made my way to and from cities I've played. This record is a personal reflection of the crisis we've all witnessed and read about every day in the paper. Calling it Reckon is an acknowledgement of loss ... lost jobs, lost homes, loss of faith in our political and financial institutions and in turn, loss of illusion."


    The Essential Cuts album is more or less a family affair featuring everyone from Amy Millan (Stars), Zeus, Feist, Emily Haines (Metric), Bahamas and more as well as production from long time friends Andrew Cash and Howie Beck. Collett reflects, "With a little help from my friends indeed...There is a revolving door cast of characters that make this a sweet selection of the back catalogue. The myriad of producers and players that have graced these recordings are a testament to the blessed incestuousness of the musical family I'm lucky to be part of."

    Communique (45 RPM) (Pre-Order)


    Smooth, Effortless, Relaxed, Tuneful, And Deceivingly Simple: Dire Straits' Communique Teems With Technical Perfectionism, Southern-Styled Grooves, And Low-Key Blues


    Reference-Level Detail, Depth, Soundstaging, Balance, And Presence: Communique Has Never Sounded Better Than On Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP Version


    Mark Knopfler's Mesmerizing Textures, Intricate Lines, And Crisp Tones Pair With Engaging Storytelling And Tight Rhythms: Every Song An Example Of Understated Virtuosity


    The performances on Dire Straits' Communique are so smooth and effortless, they were originally criticized for replicating the blueprints of the band's breakout debut. Time, however, has a way of changing perspectives and exposing the truth. More than 35 years after its original release in June 1979, Communique rightfully takes its place as the group's most underrated record - a nine-track set spiked with engaging storytelling, relaxed vibes, and deceiving simplicity.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Communique elevates Dire Straits' sophomore album to an even higher plane. Recorded in the Bahamas by Muscle Shoals veterans Barry Beckett and Jerry Wexler, the songs benefit from a laidback approach that makes guitarist/vocalist Mark Knopfler and company's stellar playing seem even more fluent - particularly when experienced on this collector's 45RPM version, on which the wider grooves allow for more detail retrieval and deeper musical insight.


    Knopfler's mesmerizing guitar textures and composed vocals appear as if they're right in front of you, holding court amidst expansive soundstages and deep-black backgrounds. Details, imaging, and presence are on a level associated with the finest audiophile recordings. You'll be hard-pressed to find another LP with cleaner, pinpoint-accurate tones. Mobile Fidelity's LP also brings into transparent view Knopfler's seemingly perfect intricate lines as well as the simpatico accompaniment from his band mates. Whole, lively, and balanced, the bass and drums arrive with a solidity rarely heard on albums of this era. Communique has truly never sounded better.


    Of course, the audiophile sonics mean little if the artistic content is lacking. Needless to say, Dire Straits' technical perfectionism and creative elan prevail throughout. Knopfler's penchant for sketching cynical characters is further developed on moody tracks like Where Do You Think You're Going and News, while Wexler's presence at the boards ensures the band keeps the rhythms extra tight. The quartet's low-key blues and swampy, Southern-styled grooves turn every song into an exercise in understated virtuosity.


    Refusing to give into excess, magnetic tunes such as Lady Writer and Angel of Mercy split a fine line between insinuating and insisting. The group shows off a combination of control, virtuosity, and tunefulness that harkens back to a rock n' roll's classic period while also pointing the way ahead. Need indisputable evidence of Dire Straits' compositional strengths? Cue up the closing Follow Me Home on this pressing and get lost amidst the peacefulness of the gentle surf and chirping crickets that frame the song. Heavenly.


    The sequence serves as additional proof that Communique remains one of the best-sounding rock records ever made.

    Soul Message From Dimona

    Following a path blazed in Belize and the Bahamas, The Numero Group finds yet another stop on the soul diaspora tour: Dimona, Israel. Between 1975-1981, a group of American ex-pats took their native sounds of Detroit and Chicago and intermingled them with the messages of the Black Hebrew culture. The results are a heavenly mix of spiritual soul and jazz with an undercurrent of gospel psychedelia. Featuring the Soul Messengers, the Spirit Of Israel, Sons Of The Kingdom, and the Tonistics, Soul Messages From Dimona is the only living document of a thriving community at both the center and fringe of the world.

    Impossible Dream

    Haley Bonar returns with her sixth full length album, Impossible Dream, which also happens to be hands-down her best work yet. The new self-produced album was tracked live-to-tape with her five piece band at the legendary Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, MN and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TVOTR) and Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Bahamas). The songs on Impossible Dream tell stories within stories, sitting side each other like Russian nesting dolls, of sexuality, lost youth, teenage parenthood, the lines of social disorder for women, and the terror of jealousy and suspicion.

    Back In Black

    Ranked 73/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Back in Black is the seventh Australian and sixth internationally released studio album by the band.


    Released on 25 July 1980, Back in Black was the first AC/DC album recorded without former lead singer Bon Scott, who died on 19 February 1980 at the age of 33, and was dedicated to him. The band considered disbanding following Scott's death, but they ultimately decided to continue, with encouragement from Scott's parents, and shortly thereafter hired Brian Johnson as their new lead singer and lyricist. Producer Robert John Mutt Lange, who had previously worked with AC/DC on Highway to Hell, was again brought in to produce. The album was recorded at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, and Electric Lady Studios in New York, where the album was also mixed.

    Love Beach

    Remastered For The First Time In 24 Bit / High-Density Formats From The Original Tapes


    'Love Beach' (1978) is the final ELP studio album from the 1970s classic era, expertly remastered for the first time in 24 bit / High-Density formats from the original tapes. The LP finds the band back to their intimate best - producing a lighter, more concise and accessible album - and jamming in the relaxed atmosphere of a studio in Nassau, Bahamas. As usual, ELP produced an excellent, technically accomplished mix of classical music and electronics, once again unearthing their extraordinary musical chemistry. Includes fans' / live favorites 'The Gambler' and the rockin' 'Canario' (based on Rodrigo's 'Fantasia Para Un Gentilhombre'). Side 2 is taken up by the superb 'Memoirs Of An Officer And A Gentleman' - one of their finest suites, highlighting voice, piano, and marching drums...


    Formed in 1970, Emerson, Lake & Palmer were torchbearers of the progressive rock sound and one of rock's first supergroups. The world-conquering, stadium-filling prog giants helped to broaden the audience for the genre from hundreds of thousands into tens of millions and were one the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970s. Their first 7 album releases all made the U.K. albums chart top 10 and U.S. top 20.

    Loyalty

    The record was called Loyalty from the beginning-it was the first decision I made about it. It's a word you
    usually see written in copperplate script, a virtue: LOYALTY. But the songs don't treat it that way, just as a
    thing to unpack. It's a force that you have to reckon with: loyalty to the dream, to the "work," to the mythical idea of "you" that somebody thought they saw. It can be a weakness as much as a strength; it can keep you from the reality of your own life, your own self. - Tamara Lindeman


    In excess virtue lies danger, or at least limits to pragmatic action-it's a lesson hard learned by anyone
    disillusioned by the erosion of youthful mythologies. Strict fealty to a fixed ideal of identity doesn't do us
    any favors as adults. Loyalty, the third and finest album yet by The Weather Station (and the first for
    Paradise of Bachelors) wrestles with these knotty notions of faithfulness/faithlessness-to our idealism,
    our constructs of character, our memories, and to our family, friends, and lovers-representing a bold
    step forward into new sonic and psychological inscapes. It's a natural progression for Toronto artist
    Tamara Lindeman's acclaimed songwriting practice. Recorded at La Frette Studios just outside Paris in
    the winter of 2014, in close collaboration with Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) and Robbie Lackritz (Feist),
    the record crystallizes her lapidary songcraft into eleven emotionally charged vignettes and intimate
    portraits, redolent of fellow Canadians Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and David Wiffen, but utterly her
    own.


    Lindeman describes La Frette, housed in an enormous, crumbling 19th-century mansion, as
    "a secret garden, a place of enchantment and grace": walls mantled in ivy and lions, corridors piled high
    with discarded tape machines, old reels, and priceless guitars. As she puts it, "Recording where we did
    meant we embraced beauty-we weren't afraid of it being beautiful." Like the record itself, it's a quietly
    radical statement, especially since certain passages achieve a diaphanous eeriness and harmonic and
    rhythmic tension new to The Weather Station. The stacked vocal harmonies of "Tapes," the drifting,
    jazz-inflected chording in "Life's Work," and the glacial percussion in "Personal Eclipse" contribute to a
    pervading sense of clock-stopping bloom and smolder, recalling the spooky avant-soul of Terry Callier's
    Occasional Rain.


    Beyond the decaying decadence and vintage gear, the brokedown palace atmosphere of
    La Frette afforded a more significant interior luxury as well, one stated with brutal honesty in the
    stunning "Shy Women": "it seemed to me that luxury would be to be not so ashamed, not to look away."


    Accordingly, Loyalty brings a freshly unflinching self-examining gaze and emotional and musical control
    to The Weather Station's songs. She is an extraordinary singer and instrumentalist-on Loyalty she plays
    guitar, banjo, keys, and vibes-but Lindeman has always been a songwriter's songwriter, recognized for
    her intricate, carefully worded verse, filled with double meanings, ambiguities, and complex metaphors.
    Though more moving than ever, her writing here is almost clinical in its discipline, its deliberate wording
    and exacting delivery, evoking similarly idiosyncratic songsters from Linda Perhacs to Bill Callahan.


    Outside her musical practice, Lindeman also happens to be an accomplished film and
    television actor, and it's her directorial eye for quietly compelling characters and the rich details of the
    everyday, Bressonian in its specificity and scope, that drives the limpid singularity of The Weather
    Station's songs. As in Bresson's films, there is no trace of theater here, no brittle singer-songwriter
    histrionics, but rather a powerful performative focus and narrative restraint, a commitment to what the
    auteur called the "simultaneous precision and imprecision of music." Despite the descriptive delicacy, the
    album never lapses into preciousness or sentimentality, instead retaining its barbs and bristles and
    remaining resolutely clear-eyed and thick-skinned. Lyrically, Loyalty inverts and involutes the language
    of confession, of regret, of our most private and muddled mental feelings, by externalizing those
    anxieties through exquisite observation of the things and people we accumulate, the modest meanings
    accreted during even our most ostensibly mundane domestic moments. ("Your trouble is like a lens," she
    discerns in "I Mined," "through which the whole world bends.")


    "Tapes" and "I Could Only Stand By" expose and exalt the quotidian-"the little tapes"
    hidden beneath a lover's bed, "the sunken old moorings" at the "bruise-colored lake"-without romanticizing
    these scenes of, respectively, grief and guilt. "Like Sisters" analyzes the darker contours of a
    friendship with devastating scrutiny. The breathless momentum of "Way It Is, Way It Could Be"-"both
    are," she sings of the way we sometimes live, for better or for worse, amid multiple truths-hinges on a
    mysterious moment when two brown dogs die underwheel, then don't, and that gut-sickness is
    overturned, a sin redeemed with a second glance. "Floodplain" and "Personal Eclipse" are also road songs
    about traveling through, and owning, the empty places in-between, literally and figuratively-what
    Lindeman deems "the various ways people try to disappear from themselves, in physical distance, in
    politeness."


    To invoke Melville (author of PoB's namesake story), "extreme loyalty to the piety of love"
    can be a destabilizing force, a kind of bondage from which we must emancipate ourselves. The line is
    from his strange masterpiece Pierre, or the Ambiguities; The Weather Station's Loyalty could quite easily
    support the same subtitle for the fascinating ways it navigates the deep canyons between certainty and
    uncertainty, faith and doubt.

    Man On The Rocks (Out Of Stock)

    Virgin EMI are delighted to announce Mike Oldfield's first album of new material since 2008. Featuring 11 brand new tracks, MAN ON THE ROCKS is a deeply personal song-based album that reflects many of Mike's different influences. Recorded in the Bahamas, Mike's 25th studio album has been produced by Mike with legendary British producer Stephen Lipson (Jeff Beck, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox). Man On The Rocks features players such as legendary bassist Leland Sklar (Phil Collins, Crosby, Stills & Nash, James Taylor) and drummer John Robinson (Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Daft Punk). Although Oldfield has worked with some of the world's most famous vocalists in the past, here he has found an incredible young talent to interpret his words, Luke Spiller from the Struts.


    Its working title, 'Rock' emphasises the album's directness, heard especially on the guitar-driven 'Irene', inspired by the category 3 hurricane that hit the Bahamas in 2011. However, it is - as you would expect from the man who gave the world Tubular Bells and so much more besides - an album of great variance and contrast; from the commercial punch of opening track, 'Sailing', to the beautiful folk-influenced 'Dreaming In The Wind' to the emotional gravitas of its closer, a cover of William McDowell's gospel song, 'I Give Myself Away'.


    Last seen performing at the personal request of Danny Boyle to a global audience of 900 million at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, Man On The Rocks underlines Mike Oldfield's status as one of the most singular talents to ever emerge from the UK. The recent 2013 BBC 4 Documentary . . . plus Tubular Bells - the story of Mike and iconic album - further enforces that fact.


    It has been a pleasure making Man On The Rocks with such a dedicated team of performers, says Oldfield. "For a long period, I felt that I wasn't going to record any new music again. But, after the elation of the Olympics and the explorations of my catalogue, I felt the time was right to return with this, one of my favourite albums to date."
