Bombadil at Foam

Monday, July 16, 2018, 3:00 AM - 6:00 AM

Bombadil (Durham, NC) http://bombadilmusic.com Two years ago, Bombadil lost a longtime bandmate and breaking up seemed inevitable. But after a period of exploration that forced them to step out of their comfort zone, Bombadil has returned as a band reborn. Their new album Fences, released 3/3/17 via Ramseur Records and produced by John Vanderslice (Spoon, The Mountain Goats), is their most remarkable work to date: meticulously crafted, yet accessible and unadorned. Pure, simple, beautiful. Its more than just an album, says Bombadil drummer and vocalist James Phillips. It is a new path, a reset after several challenging years. Fences features eleven new, original songs composed by the Durham, NC-based trio Phillips (drums, vox), Daniel Michalak (bass, vox) and Stacey Harden (guitar, vox). Recorded at Vanderslices Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco, CA, the album is influenced by early Paul Simon and steeped in shades of Cat Stevens and The Incredible String Band. Sometimes you 'produce' the hell out of a record because the material needs to be lifted and transformed, says Vanderslice. These songs and performances were so strong I mostly just put up a Neumann U67 and stood out of the way." Bombadil has made fans at NPR, Rolling Stone and the New York Times, who called them "astonishing." Time Out New York said their music is bursting with irresistible melodies, unexpected lyrical gems, and moments of profound honesty, all anchored by expert songwriting skills." They've toured extensively in the past with Dr. Dog, Kishi Bashi and Carolina Chocolate Drops and will hit the road again in 2018 in support of the new album. w/ TBA 8PM $10 All Ages
