EDITORS’ NOTES

The Budos Band distill their instrumental-only grooves from Fela-inspired percussion rhythms, horn-driven soul, and some Ennio Morricone soundtrack panoramas. The Staten Island band’s fourth album (and first in four years) pumps up Tommy Brennick's guitar, adding ominous psychedelic rock riffage to “Aphesia,” the blues-based “Magus Mountain,” and others. Those hoping for something closer to the past can turn to the horn-driven “Shattered Winds” or “Tomahawk.” Finding the common groove between Afro-funk and blues-based rock, Burnt Offering adds an interesting new wrinkle to the band's original vision.

Best album by far. Beat is deep and ominous. Aphasia capsulizes the sound of this album.

About The Budos Band

A Staten Island-based Afro-beat, soul-jazz, and funk instrumental ensemble, the Budos Band came together at a jam session hosted by Brooklyn's Afro-beat kings, Antibalas. Specializing in horn-driven world roots funk, the band has a somewhat fluctuating lineup that includes David Guy and Andrew Greene on trumpet, Cochemea Gastelum on tenor sax, Jared Tankel on baritone sax, Daisy Sugarman on flute, Thomas Brenneck on guitar, Robert Lombardo on congas, Mike Deller on organ, Vincent Balestrino on tambourine and shekere, Daniel Foder on bass, and drummers Brian Profilio and John Carbonella, Jr. The group released the self-titled The Budos Band on Daptone Records in 2005 and followed it with The Budos Band II, also on Daptone, in 2007. After a tour, and a lengthy break during which individual members contributed to other artists' projects, the band reunited to record a third album, aptly titled The Budos Band III, which was released in August of 2010. The Budos Band were also willing to assist on others' recordings. They backed Blundetto (Max Guiguet) on "Mustang," the B-side of his 2011 "Voices" single. They also contributed "Black Venom" to the Resistencia Soul compilation that also featured Nicole Willis, Lee Fields, Alice Russell, Charles Bradley, and others in 2012. Speaking of Bradley, in 2013 the group backed him on his cover of Black Sabbath's "Changes" on the A-side of a non-LP single. In October of 2014 the Budos Band re-emerged with Burnt Offering, an album that diverged from the the path they'd previously carved for themselves; the set was deeply steeped in psychedelia and soundtrack grooves as well as Afro-beat and funk. ~ Steve Leggett
