Music Monday: Bombadil

Monday, July 15, 2013

Remember the first time you discovered a band? Remember how you felt? Remember cuing your little boombox with a cassette tape and listened to the radio, fingers hovered over the record button? Waiting for that unmistakable first chord. Remember playing your favorite song on repeat? Ad nauseum. But in a good way. Laying on your bedroom floor or dancing around the room like a maniac. Remember how you turned up the volume? Louder and LOUDER. Remember how you asked everyone if they had heard this song? And if they hadn't you played it for them. Then you discovered that this band of yours, the one you had posters of in your room, or stalked on social media, had other songs. Songs you didn't even know about. New (to you) songs. And you were like Whoa! Why didn't someone tell me about this sooner? But then it was okay, because you just started to listen to those songs too. On repeat. Over and over again.

Bombadil, the four-piece band from North Carolina, is exactly THAT band. Folk-pop that's been around for a few years, but still gets top billing in my mind. With a sound similar to the Avett Brothers and verging occasionally to the realm of steampunk, Bombadil has a style all their own. Their new album Metrics of Affection comes out next Tuesday, July 23. To tide you over until then, here are a couple songs I thing you will like. Feel free to press the replay button. I won't tell.

"So Many Ways to Die"
