Answer Me

Ever hear a song and love it the first time you hear it? Okay. How about hear it months later and completely loving it more than you previously did? This, for me is one of those songs. Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are arguably one of my favorite bands of all time. Only three albums deep and they seem to have captured a sound in soul not seen since the late 60’s/mid 70’s. The key seems to be not only their strict use of instruments and analogue recording equipment from the 70’s, but also their natural understanding of music from that era of funk/soul. I had no idea it was Sharon herself playing the piano on this! One of my favorite songs. No other band cooler than the Dap-Kings. Quote me on that.
