A.A. Bondy re-releases American Hearts; records Daytrotter Session

I’ve already written about what a moving experience listening to A.A. Bondy’s American Hearts can be. Bondy and his debut solo album were my favorite discoveries of 2007 (check the list boys and girls), and with the recent Fat Possum re-release, which is available now, more people than ever should be able to catch on.

Bondy also stopped by Daytrotter recently and recorded a set which was featured on the site last week. He used the session to play a few new songs, cover an old blues standard, and play “Witness Blues” - one of the true standouts of American Hearts. Check out 2 from the set, then go download the rest:

MP3 :: Witness Blues
MP3 :: Among The Pines
(from Daytrotter Sessions. Download the rest here)

MP3 :: There’s A Reason
(from American Hearts. Buy here)

In a truly brilliant pairing, Bondy will play The Bowery Ballroom on June 11 with another PHW favorite, Deer Tick.
