Believers may be slightly more spacious and slightly more fleshed but, thankfully, AA Bondy's second effort on Fat Possum is more the same beautiful stuff that filled his first two solo releases. The blurry, rain-soaked Americana songs are perfectly heartbreaking just the way they are, so reinvention would be tragic. Pull any one of these tunes out of a hat: each one intentionally constructed with the sure hand of a songwriter at the top of his game. Pressed for favorites, go for "Down in the Fire" or "Surfer King." Press Play and zone out: Believers is a gorgeous, lethargic trip.
