Staten Island outfit The Budos Band celebrate 20 years together this year and will mark it with forthcoming new album, Long In The Tooth, out on October 9th via Daptone.
In that time the 8-strong outfit have carved a special place on the musical landscape with their timeless psych-infused soul and funk, and an enviable love of groove. Ahead of the new record comes lead single ‘Long In The Tooth’ which says more about them than I can, more succinctly too, in just over three-and-a-half-minutes. It is a super smooth jam that saunters along a seductive groove while rugged riffs and breakbeats cut through the sea of fuzz and warm organ hum as menacing horns swoop in from above. ‘Long In The Tooth’ is a thrilling and pulsating powerhouse of rhythmic fervour that is totally irresistible and will leave an indelible mark on your soul.
Listen to ‘Long In The Tooth’ below – and keep an eye put for the new album come October.
