Track Of The Day #456: Budada – ‘Mainshock’


Budada began life in 2011 as an anti-folk/lo-fi duo consisting of Hong Kong born singer/multi-instrumentalist Louise Schwarz and Wiltshire based drummer/vocalist Jake Cheesman, who formed after seeing a Melt-Banana concert. After gigging around the South West of the UK and spending a couple of weeks playing in Hong Kong, the band were boosted by the arrivals of guitarist Marcel Rose and bass player Lance Thorman. In early 2013 their debut full length LP ‘blackpeppercowboybone’ was recorded in a factory on an industrial estate and released at the beginning of the year. A new three track offering entitled ‘Scum Rises To The Top’ (produced by Dom Bailey and Daturas frontman Joe Chowles at Melksham’s Nine Volt Leap studios) has just been issued via their own label and has turned out rather good indeed. Here’s the lead track ‘Mainshock’. A review of the EP is up on this site now…
