The Budos Band: New Album, “Unbroken, Unshaven” MP3

A couple months ago i picked up a copy of the Daptone Records (home of Sharon Jones and the Dap kings) Compilation Daptone Gold, and while all 23 tracks are pretty good, there were a couple that had me checking the ipod to figure out who they were by.  The answer was always The Budos Band.  The other songs on the comp. were solid Funk/R&B/etc. but there was something more intriguing about The Budos Band tracks, they infused more psychedelic/rock and other non-traditional influences that gave it this dark mysterious vibe to it.

I had since forgotten to look up more info on the band, but luckily they will be releasing their third studio album The Budos Band III on august 10th, and are offering an MP3 from it for download.  Some great horns here that remind me a bit of Fela Kuti if your into that.  They’ll also be in DC at the Black Cat on July 24th.
