sharon jones & the dap-kings
give the people what they want
the unstoppable miss jones returns with an album that delivers every bit of the unbridled soul & studio acumen that defines this bands’ universally loved sound.
sharon jones & the dap kings have created their strongest record yet, from the relentless stomping entrance of 'retreat!' with its ominous, thundering arrangements & the irresistible syncopations & pulsing detroit-flavoured soul of 'stranger to my happiness', straight through to mellow feel-good anthem 'we get along' & the intoxicating groove of 'low down, love'. the authentic, vintage sound is owed to recording in daptone’s analogue ‘house of soul’ studio/headquarters in the heart of bushwick, brooklyn where sharon herself wired the electrical outlets! “soul music grounded in & learning from the past but addressing the here & now” 4/5 – mojo “studiously channels the halcyon days of motown & stax” – uncut.
