Celebrating 15 years from 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.
“In some ways, it’s reminiscent of our first two albums "The Budos Band" and "Budos II",” says Tom Brenneck. “We branched off on "Burnt Offering" and "V". Now, we’re still moving forward. You can play these songs on the dance-floor. We knew the horns had to stand out too. Thinking about hip-hop allowed us to put the bounce back into The Budos.”
This is evident from needle drop to final rotation. Heavy drum breaks, reminiscent of the B-Boy approved grooves of their early output reign supreme, setting the stage for the pulsating, hallucinatory wall of organ, menacing horns, and rugged guitar riffs to permeate your soul - leaving the listener in a rhythmic wash of Budonian rapture.

Over the course of their nearly decade and a half long career, the 60’s/70’s influenced afro-soul instrumental band’s thunderous and eclectic sound has known no bounds. "Long In The Tooth" is a collection of expertly crafted energizing guitar licks, syncopated percussion precision, vigorous horns, and validates that the band is in its most monumental form to date
Today's tune "Long In The Tooth" is the title tune from their latest album that represents the culmination of a 15-year journey by a band that has consistently carved its own distinct path through the grooves of history.
