Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings

So we’ve had a bit of a break for Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and by break I mean we’ve been busier than usual given the time of year and all. But it’s 2008 now and there’s a bunch of new music we’ll be recommending, first off some soul.

100 days, 100 nights is the newest album from Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. The Dap-Kings have collaborated all over the place, from Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black album to working with people like Mark Ronson. These guys are rooted in the foundations of soul music and you can tell it from the first listen.

100 days, 100 nights is the third album from Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. These guys have the potential to make soul music great again, some say they are a force that can save soul music. The songs have the same class and timeless quality of any of the motown classics. Mark Ronson’s been giving the album a lot of play on his online radio show, particularly “tell me”. The album really isn’t suitable for club play, it’s a bit too laid back for that.

This is one of those albums you buy just for chilling out at home, think “Back to Mine” series and you kinda get the idea. Check out the “Back to Mine” website.

  1. “100 Days, 100 Nights” – 3:45
  2. “Nobody’s Baby” – 2:27
  3. “Tell Me” – 2:46
  4. “Be Easy” – 3:03
