Sharon Jones & The Dap – Kings (Daptone)

We’ve got two very nice reviews for the #1 group on the soul scene today: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, courtesy of The Independent and The Guardian (in case the title didn’t give it away.)

The Independent 5 Stars

“Soul Time! is a near perfect expression of retro-style that grips from its opening bars. It’s as if all the components of classic soul – Memphis, Chicago, Detroit and Muscle Shoals – have been distilled into one album… and has the most contagious funk itch since Sly Stone lost his mojo.”

The Guardian 4/5 Stars

“…What really counts with this band is the blistering live show…there is a crackle in the band’s playing that, in the best songs, fans to a full-scale blaze. There is a filthy energy to the thrusting When I Come Home, while New Shoes bounces along  with so much fierce attitude, it hardly matters that the song is an amalgam of clichés.”
