Little Rock, Arkansas’ psychodelic rock’n’roll pack BOMBAY HARAMBEE is streaming a couple of new songs from their upcoming LP “Dotted Line”. The following set of track is being released as s 7” release called “Dotted Line / Check, Check, Checkmate”. As the official statement says, the bands “will seek to build momentum in advance of releasing their first LP, with the working title of “Goldmine”.” Well, great job guys – these new tracks will absorb and energize us and tease the upcoming record properly. Let’s expect a great driving full length. Meanwhile, taste the following appetizers.
We realize location has played a role in our existence as a band. Two hours from Memphis, five from both Nashville and Dallas, and a gruelling seven from New Orleans, the music of Little Rock percolates without direct interference. It’s musicians can toil and toil without notice, as musical kingmakers’ eyes pass over the city as they dart east, west, north and south.
But regardless of what might be called an underdog mentality we continue to push forward.
2015 will certainly prove to be the most important year for the band, as it marks the band’s first extensive touring outside the confines of Arkansas.
