recorded primarily in water valley, ms in april and may, 'when the devil's loose' expands upon the stripped-down and stirring sound of his debut album, 'american hearts'. a full band now accompanies him on most tracks, lending a full, roomy sound to the 10 haunting songs. carried along by bondy's lived-in voice, 'when the devil's loose' ranges from a lonely twang ('oh the vampyre'), to lullaby-like ('on the moon'), to inflected with stax spook ('to the morning'), to the ethereal cadence of 'when the devil's loose' and the swirling 'i can see the pines are dancing'.
