About The Budos Band

The Budos Band describe their sound as "doom rock Afro-soul big band with a '70s touch." Their multivalent approach bridges musical universes from trippy psychedelia and Afro-funk to hard rock and late-'60s soul. Their often-hypnotic, labyrinthine compositions, consistently offer tight arrangements and infectious grooves. Their numerically recorded catalog between 2005 and 2010 -- Budos Band I, II, and III -- reflected their early influences. 2014's Burnt Offering, wove in elements of early-'70s psychedelia and Krautrock. Over the next five years, their music evolved as they road-tested it in the U.S. Europe and Asia. They integrated raw, metal-tinged, high-energy psych rock on 2019's V, and horn-drenched, dubby psychedelia on 2020's Long in the Tooth. 2023's Frontier's Edge EP marked the debut release from Diamond West Records, the band's in-house label run by saxophonist Jared Tankel and guitarist Tom Brenneck.
