Tulip Frenzy’s #6 Best Album Of 2011: A.A. Bondy’s “Believers”

So incongruous is the description of what A.A. Bondy produced on the magnificent Believers — an album that owes equal debts to Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, and Brian Eno — it’s hard to convey what a fine accomplishment this is.  Beautiful singing, a glorious sounding record — with the sonic space of British art-rock undergirding classic American folk and roots rock — this was the sleeper album of the year.  We did not see this coming, not from a guy who in the 1990s fronted a Nirvana-esque punk band.
