One of New York's favorite cabaret artists is a transgender warrior who for years performed as the seasoned-salty lounge singer Kiki DuRayne. Bond's theatrical streak reshapes itself on this collection: the songs form a parallel narrative to Joan Didion's novel "Play It As It Lays", tapping into its themes of isolation and grim self-reliance through songs by tough storytellers like Mark Eitzel, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell. Thomas "Doveman" Bartlett's piano arrangements support Bond's intense soliloquys. — Ann Powers, NPR Music
