Preorder at RefleX
Already well known as one of the most exciting acts anywhere for their explosive live shows and the prolific output of their gritty studio recordings, this is their follow up to the breakthrough second album 100 Days, 100 Nights and marks a bold step forward for the band who almost singlehandedly stewarded today's return of soul music to its more traditional sound.
Produced by Bosco Mann and recorded on an Ampex eight-track tape machine by Gabriel Roth at Daptone Records own House of Soul studios, this record drips with a warmth and spontaneity rarely found since the golden days of Muscle Shoals and Stax.
Jones's raw power, rhythmic swagger, moaning soulfulness and melodic command set her firmly alongside Tina Turner, James Brown, Mavis Staples and Aretha as a fixture in the canon of soul music. From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in the opening The Game Gets Old to the stripped-down Sam Cooke-style Mama Don't Like My Man closer, the Dap-Kings dance seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. This is the "Daptone Sound" at its finest. The LP format includes a download card for MP3 version of the album.
