Despite the premise of HBO’s new show Hung being about a man’s overly-large sexual organ, it looks like the whole affair will be stolen, in true HBO fashion, by women: Anne Heche and the always-astounding Jane Adams look fantastic!

Between this film by Donnie Darko‘s Richard Kelly and the upcoming My Sister’s Keeper, it looks as though Cameron Diaz might be back in fighting shape, in terms of choosing interesting parts (in which case we will forgive her for the Vegas movie co-starring Ashton Kutcher). Whoever cast James Marsden as Diaz’s husband should get a raise, they make for a compelling, if impossibly gorgeous couple. Kelly’s Southland Tales was a bloody disaster, so keep your fingers and toes crossed that this one returns the director to some kind of glory.

A.A. Bondy
When the Devil’s Loose
(Fat Possum)
Releasing: 1 September 2009 (US)

These days it’s hard to decipher the line of demarcation between a great songwriter and a good one. It seems like that line is the taste of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, today’s modern indie folk hero, who has an impeccable knack for picking flawless openers. The one that sparked my interest most sincerely lay behind the Alabama bred six-string troubadour, A.A. Bondy, and his subtle stories of love, despair, and everything in between. “When the Devil’s Loose” is the lead single off the album by the same name (due out in September on Fat Possum) and shares a sense of melody analogous to that of his label companion, Andrew Bird, but the sonic palette itself falls in line more with the Southern tradition the label has always prided itself in. If “When the Devil’s Loose” is any indication of the rest of the record, then expect Bondy to be a household name from here on out.

SONG LIST
01 When the Devil’s Loose
