james osullivan Don't normally leave a comment but it would be a shame to not have this in your collection if you like Americana. There's no re-invention Of The wheel here. The simplicity in the song writing and emotion seems to click with me on a similar level to a Jason Molina song, although I wouldn't compare the two musically.

about

he Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride through the first two tracks on A.A. Bondy's solo debut, American Hearts. The third track, "Black Rain Black Rain", recounts a personal plague, and on the fourth, "Rapture (Sweet Rapture)", he sings about, well, you know: "I don't want to talk about Jesus, I just want to see his face." Beset with demons but daring the Almighty to appear, Bondy has clearly forsaken the rock crunch of his former band Verbena-- which, despite their one-time hype, turned out to be a house built upon the sand-- and has reinvented himself as a southern preacher type, steeping blues-folk sermons in Biblical imagery and seeing fire and brimstone on the horizon, LOVE and HATE tattooed on his knuckles.
