A.A. Bondy is awesome.

Apparently he’s from Birmingham. He lives in NYC now.

I saw him open up for The Weakerthans a few months ago.

At the time, I liked him, but he seemed a little out of place for the show I was attending.

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon his album American Hearts.

It’s amazing.

If you like Ryan Adams/Bob Dylan type stuff, you’ll like A.A. Bondy.

Check out his myspace for a few good tracks.

And for some good quality, live (free) tracks, check out his Daytrotter session.

I recommend getting the whole album, though.
