sharon jones and the dap kings

i was sick over new years and mike bought me this album. cause he's nice.

i'd been raving about this band ever since a friend of a friend introduced me to them. this is the first song i heard... and i was hooked.



so anyway, i've been listening to this album a lot. enough that i'd invest in another album. the story i heard was that the dap kings (who also back up amy winehouse) found sharon jones and said "hey, we like your sound, let's make an album" and so they did. and now they have a few. and i'm sure they're all as soulful and rich as this one. on another note, i was calling them the dap killers for the first week or so. i think the dap killers sounds pretty bad ass, just saying.
