|A.A. Bondy : Believers|
Believers is the third solo release for Scott Bondy, known as A.A. Bondy, since leaving the post-Nirvana grunge/punk group Verbena. His transformation to a bluesy, folky singer-songwriter has provided us already with the hauntingly beautiful and sparse albums American Hearts and When The Devil's Loose. Believers is more of a full band effort. Bondy really takes it to the next level, with a more fully realized sound that's both spacey and ethereal, and still plenty haunting, without losing any of that voice that cuts you to the core.
