The Budos Band+Spires
The sound of summer in Brooklyn is a hotly contested title that could never be definitively decided, but these two bands vie for singular yet complementary claims to capturing it. The Budos Band blends their no-frills Staten Island roots with an overpowering horn section inspired by Fela Kuti and a touch of '70s kitch. Asphalt and merciless heat combine into a mostly minor mood; Budos shows get hot fast. Spires plays it cooler, having steadily developed a boho-chic psych-pop aesthetic alongside British corollary Temples, with the infectious debut single "Candy Flip" still underground enough that you probably haven't heard of them.
