"There's not a lot of new music that I like, but this one got my attention and stood out. Great sound and very listenable. The sound is good enough for any of our audiophile customers." — Chad Kassem, owner and CEO, Acoustic Sounds Inc. and Quality Record Pressings.

In nearly all of their interviews, Durham, North Carolina indie folk-pop band Bombadil claim that their conceptual starting point is the folk music of Bolivia, last heard on the U.S. pop charts approximately never.

Their new album, Fences, is loaded with their trademark indie-pop, folk and art-rock. The album was produced by John Vanderslice and recorded at Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco. (Their stelllar 180-gram vinyl edition was plated and pressed at the legendary Quality Record Pressings in Salina, Kansas!)

The musical lineup includes founding member Daniel Michalak, James Phillips (who joined the band in 2007), and recent addition Stacy Harden. The band is a collaborative effort, with songs written by all of the members. Guitar, bass, piano, and drums are their primary instruments.

"I think the diversity in styles comes from having several composers in the band, and being free to write whatever we want," Michalak says. "Sometimes songs have just a single writer, sometimes two, sometimes three, sometimes four-so that provides a lot of different combinations. Stacy, who joined last year, is just starting to put compositions into the band now. But that's a big part of the group, we're all creatively in charge."

Previous Bombadil albums have reflected the diverse musical interests of the band members. When asked about the band's current musical influences, Michalak threw out R. Kelly, ELO and old-time string band music. The band's most recent album, released in 2015, was Hold On, and featured a wide range of styles and also instruments, including horns and strings.
