On the show this time, it’s the powerful 60’s and 70’s influenced instrumentals of the mighty Budos Band.

The Budos Band is now on their 9th release - 6 albums and 3 EP’s - and they are also now on their own label - Diamond West. They were already recording on their own, in their own studio, and they were living a bi-coastal existence with some members in California. So, it really is an organic move, amicably splitting from their origin story label Daptone Records to do their own thing. Continuing their run of epic-sounding cinematic instrumental dramas, their first release on this imprint is the EP 'Frontier’s Edge.'

Recorded 08/25/2023.

  1. Frontier’s Edge
  2. Crescent Blade
  3. Long in the Tooth
  4. Gun Metal Grey
