The Budos Band is keeping soul alive

The Budos Band's new album, Budos Band II, is seriously awesome. This is how funk should sound. I'm not surprised, since I've liked everything I've heard from Daptone Records, but this is amazing.

You can buy it here.

And while you're at it, check out the new Sharon Jones.
I'm studying in the library when I accidentally overhear a phrase from a conversation across the room.

"Now, I'm definitely not a racist but..."

I'd thought even people who like to say things like that had realized how it sounded and had stopped saying it, but you'll never stop getting surprised by what people will say when you live in Wyoming.

All I can do is turn up the volume on the electro. Christ.
