Twenty years hardly makes one "long in the tooth," but Brooklyn's Budos Band are celebrating two decades as a musical unit (and 15 years from the release of their debut album) with their sixth LP, Long in the Tooth, out October 9th via Daptone Records. The album continues to expand on their soul-inspired instrumentals, sounding (as they put it) "as if Quentin Tarantino was the music supervisor for a Bond film."

“In some ways, it’s reminiscent of our first two albums The Budos Band and Budos II,” says Tom Brenneck, guitarist and producer. “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.”
