Believers is ten new songs by A.A. Bondy. They were conjured during and between dreams, in bare rooms, and on the late night streets of America. It was recorded in the spring of 2011 by Rob Schnapf at Mant/Kingsize Studios in Glassell Park, California.
Musicians include Ben Lester (drums, piano, pedal steel) and Macey Taylor (bass).
Believers is the follow up to the 2009 album When The Devil's Loose, and is Bondy's
third for Fat Possum Records.

IN STORES TODAYmore
the late punk Jay Reatard was best known as a solo artist, but he'd also been part of an absurd number of bands. Those bands did a whole lot of recording, and the records they left behind are ready for rediscovery. Last month, Goner released a Best New Music'd re-issue of 'Teenage Hate,' an album from Reatard's old band Reatards. And now, Fat Possum is planning to release a cd/vinyl best-of retrospective from Lost Sounds, a frantic, synth-damaged punk band that featured Reatard and Alicja Trout (also of River City Tanlines). That releaes, Blac Static, arrives July 19.
Blac Static features songs culled from three of Lost Sounds' four albums, as well as an unreleased demo of "I Sit I Watch I Wait." It was compiled by Trout and drummer Rich Crook. Below, we've got the tracklist..
