About The 3rd Album
Sweet Nothings is the third full-length release from Bomethius, the solo project of Dallas-based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Jonathan Hodges. Without a doubt his strongest and most mature effort to date, Sweet Nothings draws from Hodges’ classical training to explore a range of styles from blues and jazz to minimalism and chamber rock. Echoing the sounds of Andrew Bird, Elliott Smith, and Randy Newman, this mischievous brand of baroque pop channels the frank, existential audits of Hodges’ alter-ego, a disenchanted young man plagued by alienation and shame.
