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.

It is very nice to see Vardalos get a chance to go behind the camera—the writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding does triple duty here. Major bonus points of course are given to anything featuring the amazing Rachel Dratch!

This new Italian romantic comedy from IFC definitely looks noteworthy. It seems to be a major change of pace from the dramas American audiences are used to seeing out of that country, and a welcome, refreshing change of pace.

I think if you look up “train wreck” in any dictionary, there will be a picture of this. What happened to Lara Flynn Boyle?!
