Review by John Noyd
August 2013

Named for a Tolkien character that lives in the woods and talks to animals, North Carolina’s effusive acoustic Bombadil exerts a natural magic for telling tall tales with a splendid tendency towards casual detail. From wise-cracking raps to cantering chanteys this band of merry mischief-makers deploy serene semantics in their warm, inviting antics; balancing light-hearted harmonies within well-informed choruses for a lilting patchwork quilt of cozy folk-pop vignettes both devilishly insistent and joyfully literate. Delightful flights filled with chatty patter and off-beat treats, “Metrics,” measures life’s simple joys and philosophical challenges with nimble civility and savory contemplation; befriending while upending in gleeful allegiance to fleeting melodies. Opening for Mexo-Americana band David Wax Museum, Bombadil plays Madison’s Frequency September 22nd and Milwaukee’s Shank Hall September 25th.
