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, itʼs reminiscent of our first two albums The Budos Band and Budos
II,” says Tom Brenneck. “We branched off on Burnt Offering and Budos V. Now,
weʼre 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.
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.
