Staten Island's Budos Band celebrate their 15th anniversary with the release of Long in the Tooth, their sixth long-player. While the tongue-in-cheek title refers to the band's longevity, it also references the music on offer here. They shifted aesthetic gears with 2014's Burnt Offering, adding a heady, heavy mix of riff-centric rock and psychedelia to their swaggering meld of R&B, jump blues, and Afro-funk, and placed the guitars, organ, and drums right up front.
