Bombadil is a Durham North Carolina band that met while studying in Bolivia. The sound and recording style is retro in a way but not retro in a 70′s sense but retro in a 40′s or 50′s sense. The music is upbeat and inviting and that’s just what I’ve heard from the few songs that I’ve had a privileged to listen to. Now I just need to hear the rest of the album.
Also check out their website where you can hear a few more songs as well as take a look at the pictures that they’ve taken all Amelie style with their album at different locations around the world.
The sophomore release Tarpits and Canyonlands was out July 7th of this year on Ramseur Records.
