Afro-psychedelic soul legends, The Budos Band, announce their sixth studio album Long In The Tooth, along with a single of the same name via Daptone Records. Long In The Toothmarks the 20th anniversary of the band’s inception and 15 years since their eponymous 2005 full-length debut. Sounding as if Quentin Tarantino was the music supervisor for a Bond film, the title track locks the listener into an unshakable groove, with drums simmering between swells of horns as guitar snakes towards a resounding organ.
Long In The Tooth was recorded in just five days at Diamond Mine Studios in Queens, NY. The album is clearly a standout, a culmination of a 15-year journey by a band that has consistently carved its own distinct path through the grooves of history. After one listen, you might expect a full orchestra behind the curtain, instead, you’ll find eight ruthless mavericks – Brian Profilio [drums], Daniel Foder [bass], Tom Brenneck [guitar], Mike Deller [organ], Jared Tankel [saxophone], Andrew Greene [trumpet], Dave Guy [trumpet], Rob Lombardo [bongos, congas]. While the band has maintained a timeless and unique style unaffected by musical trends, the signature Budos sound has been sampled by Panic! At The Disco, Black Eyed Peas, EARTHGANG and more.
