Having scalded listeners’ ears with sonic lava on Budos I and stung them with venomous frequencies on Budos II, The Budos Band delivers on their promise to spread the epidemic of “Budos Fever” far and wide with the release of The Budos Band III. The cobra is poised to strike if anyone dares to challenge The Budos on their quest. And, if there was ever any question whether ... Read more in Amazon's The Budos Band Store

Product Description

CD Description

Daptone Records is proud to present The Budos Band III, unleashing The Budos Band s brazen sound and inspiring fervor among music lovers throughout the world. Produced by Bosco Mann and TNT at Daptone Records House of Soul Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the band s third full-length studio effort was conceived during weekly, beer-fueled Staten Island writing sessions as well as more than 150 live gigs over the last two years and recorded during a 48 hour period in January 2010. Since the release of their critically acclaimed The Budos Band II (2007), Staten Island s sole afro-funk collective has been keeping busy. The Budos have toured Europe, the US West Coast, Midwest, New Orleans, Miami, Northeast, and Canada. A mix of club dates, festivals, and the occasional high-profile private event has placed the band in front of a wide range of listeners. One two-week span at the end of the summer of 2008 saw them play jazz clubs in France, pubs in Belgium, the large Lowlands Festival in Holland, and Mark Ronson s birthday party at a private estate outside of London. If the menacing album art, which features a cobra primed for the attack, is any indication of the music itself, we can expect an all out assault of the senses, with a tendency towards the venomous and psychedelic. The end result, as Pitchforkmedia states, is something so hip it could kill you in large doses in the right doses it just plain kills. When your whole sound is based on the groove, keeping your listener wanting more is essential, and this does that. Pitchfork The Budos Band are everything great about Elmore Leonard movies without all the dialogue, palm trees, or Travolta: Just brassy sax, shakers, and cool-daddy-o bongos. Village Voice The minor-key horns and creeping bass lines will scare, not ease, you onto the dance floor. Spin You could put [The Budos Band II] on in any room in the world a nightclub in Barcelona, a nursing home in Tenafly and folks would not be able to stop themselves from dancing. NY Mag

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. 7 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heard a track of theirs being used on the telly, I Shazamed it and was surprised to find it was a current band and not some long forgotten band from the 60's.
I downloaded the track to my iPhone but really wanted the album, so I took it back to '99 and bought a physical copy.

The album is all killer no filler, however, special attention should be made to Black Venom, Natures Wrath and Crimson Skies.
This album was made for driving at night or whilst enjoying the drawings of Rockabilly Batman.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 31 Dec 2011
By jdub
Format:Audio CD
Just the best band in the world at the moment. Have these guys ever done a bad track? No, and they keep getting better. Every tune is like a lost 70's soundtrack gem but with a modern punch and power. No other stuff at the moment fills me with as much lust for life and the power of music as a bit of Budos. Get bitten by the cobra, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Instrumental Groove-O-Rama 4 Nov 2011
By q_fdb
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Budos Band is easily one of the grooviest bands around, and this one is their most rewarding album to date. Afrobeat, funk and soul are the main ingredients here - blended by the twelve-piece band into a predictable but perfectly executed set of 10 instrumental originals and a cover version of 'Day Tripper' by The Beatles. Though not every tune is equally compelling, there are plenty of stand-out tracks to make this record more than worthwhile. If you're looking for an album of accessible and (mostly) danceable contemporary grooves: no need to look further.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Keep Getting Better 11 Dec 2010
By Seybold - Published on
Best Budos release yet. Every song is solid, and the band is even tighter, with a solid groove that works great on its own or behind the solos. They branch out on this record, at times emphasizing guitar or organ instead of just the horns. The songs could easily support extended-mix versions.

Don't miss their live show if you get a chance to see them.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, CD sound quality mediocre 2 Sep 2013
By Anthony Millevolte - Published on
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I love the music, but am frustrated with what sounds like mp3 quality sound on the CD. It is stuffy with no room for the horns to ring out. CD quality sound should have more sonic space -- this CD sounds like the band is playing in a tub of water. Does anyone know if it is better on vinyl? Five stars for the music and one for the sound.

If you like seat-dancing while you drive, anyway. This CD is funky, with tight instrumentation. Buy it and have fun! If you know why the Budos band always puts reptiles on its covers, leave a comment, K?
