Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
100 Days, 100 Nights [MP3]
     


Amy Winehouse stole her band for her 15 minutes in the spotlight, but Sharon don’t care about that. Sharon’s been due for her name in bright lights for a long time, and those 100 days and 100 nights have finally produced a glorious and highly anticipated new album with the Dap-Kings that is earning critical praise from everyone from the New York Times to the Los Angeles Times and all spots in between. The world tour kicks off at the legendary Apollo Theatre, an apt first step to getting Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings en route to their own status as soul music legends. [PopMatters review]

Budos Band
Chicago Falcon [MP3]
     


The Budos Band is the quintessence of Staten Island Soul. Their exciting new afro-influenced take on instrumental music has been captivating listeners from turntables as well as bandstands across the nation. Eleven pieces in all, their group consists of drums, bass, guitar, electric organ, two trumpets, baritone saxophone, and a percussion section employing bongos, congas, tambourine, guiro, clave, shekere and cowbell. Their music has been described as “compelling”, “unbridled”, “psychedelic”, “innovative”, and above all “soulful”. [PopMatters review]

The Grey Race
On the Chin [MP3]
     


The Grey Race play soft melodic pop rock that is sure to appeal to fans of Paul McCartney (think Wings) and Sean Lennon (with perhaps a hint of John) as well as indie fans of Jeff Buckley and Midlake. American Songwriter says the debut album “Give It Love” is “quite a find”, and we hope you feel the same about its dark musings on the nature of survival in our everyday lives.
