Instrumental Funk Group On Vinyl LP!

Fifteen years after the release of their debut album, Daptone's Royal Court from Staten Island delivers a truly epic collection of new material that finds the group further bridging the gap between the farfisa-fueled Ethio-Funk stylings of their early recordings, with the psychedelic, Sabbath-inspired hellfire of late.

The title track and lead single,"Long In TheTooth", jumps out of the speakers with a heavy drum break (reminiscent of the B-Boy approved grooves of their early output), drenched in a pulsating, hallucinatory wall of organ, menacing horns and a rugged guitar riff that pummels the listener into Budonian submission. Imagine Link Wray and Mulatu Astatke collaborating on an Italian horror soundtrack and you're getting close.

Long In The Tooth represents the culmination of a 15-year journey by a band that has consistently carved its own distinct path through the grooves of history.

The whole record flows seamlessly but two tracks bubble over with extra flavor as 'Gun Metal Grey' displays diabolical guitar/bass lines and soaring horn charts winningly around popping drums and a smooth sax solo while 'Haunted Sea' churns out rich bass and squealing echoes during its quick groove. With the hip afro-funk of Long in the Tooth, The Budos Band continues to pump out infectious horn drenched jams.
-Shawn Donohue, Glide Magazine
The music here retains the band's core strength - they incessantly rely on deep, hard-swinging, intensely delivered grooves, no matter the material.
