Discovery: The Budos Band

Though they’ve only just hit our radar, The Budos Band are legends in psych and jazz quarters. With the release of their new track Long In The Tooth, coinciding with their 15th anniversary, it’s easy to see why.

Long In The Tooth is a soulful and sultry proposition. Brass plays off against bass and guitar in a composition that would soundtrack a blurry, smoke-filled night in a bar perfectly.

The Budos Band clearly draw from ’60s and ’70s nostalgia in their sound but the way they have constructed their own version of those classic sounds is highly admirable.

Check out Long In The Tooth below. If you find yourself a fan, you’re in good company. Their admirers include Iggy Pop, The Wu-Tang Clan and Madonna.
