The Line of Best Fit: 8/10
“On Enderness, his first album in eight years, he channels his eternal weariness into evocative blurs of languid, hypnotic sound that help form a kind of ambient blues music.”
“But although the sound is spare, Bondy delivers these dreamy, almost hypnotic songs with a surprising amount of soul and a potent if gauzy intensity.”
An update from Bondy:
In 2012 I quit making music and joined an MDMA surf club in Los Angeles. Years passed. People died. –
I drank heavily and started meditating. I fell in love with Anita Baker.
In October 2016 after being held under for too long by the sea in Oxnard, CA, something shook loose and I started writing songs again.
This began a period of writing in which I found all of the songs on ENDERNESS. I recorded and played everything myself. The day after I finished a wildfire burned my house down.
