Album Notes
In early 2013, Kabomba! pounded out a recording of nearly 80 plus minutes of music in a single day under the engineering directions of Reggie O'Farrell and Adam Bencen at the The Womb studio in Austin, TX. Mastering was subsequently completed by Nick Landis at the Grammy Award winning studio Terra Nova Digital Audio in Austin, TX. For ease of access, the track "Which One" was split into two thus creating its counterpart "This One." Equally, "American Surprise" was given the same treatment to produce its counterpart "American Reprise." Ultimately only one song was cut, resulting in a fourteen song album. This is "Spring Loaded."

The album art was commissioned and completed by Luis Omar Rodriguez. While mirroring similar styles of Kabomba!'s first studio album, Luis took the Spring Loaded concept and produced a watery explosion containing numerous references to the actual Cabomba plant species and Spring Lake in San Marcos, TX. Look further and more magic can be found. We thank him dearly.

The name Kabomba! is a twist on the word 'Cabomba,' a unique underwater plant genus found in the San Marcos River and Spring Lake, known both for it's underwater flowers and oxygenating powers. The title "Spring Loaded" pays homage to the powers of those waters that provide infinite amounts of energy to the town's residents and visitors. With all the energy of hard rock and punk, Spring Loaded sounds like the collision between the Western world's funk-soul-horn-jam traditions with unashamed movements into A-minor Gyspy dances, Latin Cumbias, and chants that everyone can sing along to. It embodies themes of precious youthfulness, the wonders of space, questions of identity, and a snickering of humor. It's frightfully fun and fast, possesses moments of groovy comfort, and ultimately it is What is Is.

We hope you enjoy Kabomba!'s second installation "Spring Loaded." It's all yours.
