Record for the Winter?

I loved AA Bondy's debut American Hearts, which came out in 2008, so i've been looking forward its follow up, and the good news is it's sounding just as great. There's a slightly fuller band - with various Felice Brothers helping out at times - but again it's the strength of the songs and the overall feel of it that marks it out. I've seen next to no reviews for this (apart from an ok one in today's Guardian), and being on Fat Possum i don't see any Fleet Foxes style marketing attack happening on it, but honestly if you like things like Bon Iver or Elliott Smith, then check this out, it's another lovely record, and kind of perfect for this time of year...
