New Music Monday: The Budos Band

new music monday budos band
The Budos BandBurnt Offering, the new album from The Budos Band, is a wild, booze-fueled ride of hazy riffs, take-no-prisoners horn lines and relentless percussion that summons the occult – an evolved sound for this mighty 10-piece band sparked by their love of Black Sabbath and Pentagram. Burnt Offering, The Budos Band’s first album in four years, will be released October 21 on Daptone Records. Says Pitchfork of The Budos Band: “So tight and in tune that they’ve basically become this telepathically-communicating instrumental hydra that ambushes you into moving your body on its terms.”

Burnt Offering was recorded live in the studio, engineered and produced by Tom Brenneck, a founding member and guitarist in The Budos Band who runs Dunham Records and Studios and has worked with Cee-lo Green, The Black Lips and more. It was written at the band’s longtime Staten Island studio, where they’ve gathered for weekly rehearsals for over fifteen years. The haunting album cover was created by drummer Brian Profilio, a NYC public school art teacher.

The new album is dripping with the psychedelic sounds of early heavy metal fused with the tight-knit propulsion of Fela Kuti. “The Sticks” kicks off with a snarling riff seamlessly doubled on bass and guitar and unfurls into sludgy breakdowns and searing guitars. The title track was recorded with a Binson Echorec, a classic tape machine used by Pink Floyd / Syd Barrett.

The Budos Band has brought their loud, rowdy parties to venues and festivals across the globe, and their music has been featured everywhere from skate videos to video games (MLB The Show), TV (Entourage), and film (New York, I Love You).
