While A. A. Bondy may have plugged in for “When the Devil’s Loose,” the title track to his forthcoming sophomore release, he hasn’t lost the intimacy which made American Hearts such a delightful listen. Like much of his debut, “When the Devil’s Loose,” is rustic and hushed, birthed in rural America, and delivered with plain simplicity. The only difference being, this time around it sounds as if he’s found a new new friend or two, and a long extension cord to run out to that withered old back porch.
