Staff Pick: A.A. Bondy

Columbus Alive

"When the Devil's Loose," A.A. Bondy's second platter of weary folk-rock tunes, pulls off a nifty trick, feeling at once effortless and also the product of intense pain and suffering. This music will rip your heart out, toss it in the garbage, fish it back out, un-crumple it and gently put it back in place, wiser for the wear. Moon High's whispery mystic folk will set the stage when Bondy plays The Basement next Thursday.
