Show Review

"I almost put myself in another dimension there...spaced the fuck out." That's A.A. Bondy's final account of his recent stop and stay at the Guest Apartment. He wasn't the only one falling through the wormhole over the course of his performance of three songs both new (from When The Devil's Loose) and old (American Hearts).

Leading with the appropriately titled "Slow Parade", Bondy performs here with a cool and measured stride, stroking his great guitar with an elegant push of the thumb, swigging age old pulls on his trusty harmonica, and letting the pebbles in his throat loosely tumble about to create that signature, gravely croon of his. Even when he sings of the trees dancing to his tunes ("I Can See the Pines are Dancing"), it's with the vision of a slow and stoic sway of nature in the mind's eye...nothing too chipper, nothing too over the top. To finish, it's a two year old tune that Bondy blows the dust off of. "There's A Reason" provides a final slow wonder, perfectly lazy in it's carouseling, 1-2-3 turn. Oh Bondy, oh Bondy. This Guest Apartment is an absolute beauty. We suggest you prepare yourself for the other dimension. - David Pitz

Artist Bio

It's 12:52 in the morning and I'm at a hotel in Springfield, Ohio.

My new record is called When The Devil's Loose. To me it sounds like a radio washed ashore after a shipwreck. This whole thing started in upstate New York with snow on the ground. I got out of there, drove around the country for a bit and landed in Water Valley, Mississippi, where I kept working. The days grew longer and the snakes began to wake up. I ate catfish and walked around a lot. We got a lot of rain. The weeds grew at an alarming rate and we finished work one night under a red moon. My last record was called American Hearts. I know people that like it. Fat Possum Records put it out and is releasing When The Devils Loose. My brothers and my friends helped me record this new one. I'd like to thank them for that.

This hotel may have been nice once. - AA Bondy
