Budos Band just blew my mind
Just walked through the door after 2 hours of ripping funk. Second set was scorching. Band is getting to record their next album so they played a lot of new material. I really dig what they are doing with Afro-Beat. In a fairness it's not even afro-beat per se. They set up like Africa 70s but musically it's straight American r+b/funk horn arrangements with latin and african rhythms. The new stuff is very adventurous, almost middle eastern sounding in parts. Great rearrangement of MY GIRL. I don't think I ever heard anyone fuck with the beat like that before. One of those sacred cows that gets played str8 because it's so good. ANyway, Seattle check these mofos out tomorrow night. Vancouver the day after.
