The Budos Band
If appearing on the Daptone label isn't a dead giveaway, the Budos Band traffics in throwback funk of the most physical kind. They don't specialize based on sub-genre; from Latin-tinged drum workouts to Afrobeat swagger, the 12-member collective is equipped to handle the entire soulful spectrum of yesteryear's hip-shakers. Even as the group approach reverence for classic recordings, they never wallow in nostalgia, offering new and imaginative takes on established grooves ("His Girl") and summoning inspiration from those dusty old 45s ("Golden Dunes"). If synth-heavy rock and fey frontmen feel passé, it might be time to take lessons from the old school. With Charles Bradley. 18+. (Photo by Kisha Bari)
