The Budos Band shares “Old Engine Oil” from the forthcoming Budos Band V album, out in April on Daptone

…on which the NYC-based Budos Band strays from its usual path and delivers an uncharacteristic set of afrofunk-influenced, retro-rock instrumental swagger with a disarming wit and more than a dash of finger poppin’ fun.

Who are we kidding? The Budos have been doing this sort of amazing thing like no one else for years now, and in two months, their latest effort will hit the ears → soul → feet of everyone who comes within a million mile radius of it.

Budos Band V is out April 12 on the prime Daptone Records. To be sure, the record will be a reassuring statement with arresting instrumental compositions and compelling power, just like the rest of the Band’s many past fantastics. The set is its first full length album since 2014’s Burnt Offering, and while you may think you know what to expect with every new Budos Band album, there is always a progression into another world of influence previously untapped by the group.

Budos Band V is available on DL and LP and can be pre-ordered here and here. Listen to the full-throttle chug of “Old Engine Oil” before gearing down into V’s tracklist and upcoming live dates.
