New York Afro-funkers The Budos Band are back with their fifth studio album and the dark, heavy, Afro inspired grooves are back, but with it a grittier, at times rockier edge. The gnarly ‘Engine Oil’ chugs along like greased pistons while ‘The Enchanter’ and the thumping ‘Spider Web Part 1’ hark back to their earlier Afro-beat style. There’s little in the way of respite from the heavy funk throughout the album – marching, pounding riffs abound as the loping groove of ‘Ghost Talk’, the echoey beat of ‘Arcane Rambler’ and the spacey ‘Maelstrom’ testify. The slower, languorous tempo of ‘Valley Of The Damned’ has a funereal feel that just intensifies the edginess while ‘Veil Of Shadows’ even brings in some 60s psych. Uncomfortably tense and brilliant as ever.
