5.0 out of 5 stars American Hearts - another greater singer songwriter from the US conveyor belt, 3 May 2009
This review is from: American Hearts (Audio CD)
An astonishingly mature debut by A A Bondy. The former Verbena frontman leaves behind the idea of becoming the lead singer of the "new Nirvana" for bluesy folk songs about damnation, failed love, drugs and salvation. His voice has a wonderful southern rasp drawn from his Alabama roots and his songs shine brightly. Check out the classic "There is a reason", the memorable "Vice Rag" and protest in the form of "Witness blues". This is by no means new territory. Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan and Gram Parsons have all mined this rich vein but Bondy brings a charming freshness to American Hearts and is a rising star of Alt country along with contemporaries like Anthony da Costa and Abbie Gardner . A good free session of his songs can also be found on Daytrotter. I would venture to suggest that this album will not dissapoint, but its your money!
