Watch Bahamas Croon ‘Lost in the Light’ Acoustic
A stripped-down set from SXSW
While we were gushing about Canadian singer-songwriter Afie Jurvanen at SXSW this year, the folks at Liveset had the good sense to get Bahamas on tape, capturing a (typically, for him) beautiful acoustic version of “Lost in the Light,” the opening track off his 2012 disc Barchords. The only bummer is you can’t really get a sense of Jurvanen’s soulful, skillful guitar playing here. But you can understand why he was such an apt musical foil for Feist when he used to play alongside the kindred Canuck spirit in her band. This is classic in the best possible way. You can find the rest of Liveset’s SXSW videos here and all of SPIN’s SXSW musings here.
