You Wont with Bombadil
You Won’t is the Boston-based duo of Josh Arnoudse and Raky Sastri, fast friends ever since they squared off in a fierce but poorly executed sword-fight in 1999. The two Massachusetts natives collaborated on a litany of non-musical projects prior to forming a band, conspiring to produce a series of little-seen experimental films, guerrilla theater stunts, and duct-taped refrigerators filled with toxic sludge. You Won’t was born in late 2010 following three lonely, inspired months spent recording in the suburban woodlands of Eastern Massachusetts. Following the release of debut LP Skeptic Goodbye on Old Flame Records in February 2012, the pair has toured across the United States, garnering praise from the likes of SPIN and KEXP for their distinctly lyrical, insistently melodic, and thoroughly percussive sound.
With a sound all their own and a stage show to match, Bombadil is, if nothing else, one of the freshest bands to emerge in a long time. Formed by Duke University alumni Daniel Michalak, Bryan Rahija and Stuart Robinson, this band draws on a unique mélange of influences to create a sound that is unclassifiable. The group Magnet Magazine deemed “a drunker, circus-reared version of The Band,” was born in Bolivia, where Michalak and Rahija first met. The folk music indigenous to the region lit a creative spark and inspired the two to begin writing songs that incorporated international instruments and styles. That influence, paired with their collective backgrounds in Piedmont blues, psychedelic rock and Robinson’s background as a classical pianist, stands as the driving force behind the band’s unique sound.
