Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings: Better Things To Do

If you love 60’s soul and R&B and lyrics about the pleasure and perils of love, you’ll fall for Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. Matt shared “I Learned The Hard Way” in his Sonic Stew #4 a while back. We’ve got more treats from I Learned The Hard Way, which is the gang’s fourth studio album.

Jones sounds as good as ever, and The Dap-Kings provide such an authentic soulful musical accompaniment that it makes time travel seem possible. I am a sucker for these tunes, and thoroughly looking forward to the new album, which drops April 6. Enjoy these ditties, and join in the anticipation with me!

You can also stream the album in its entirety here thanks to NPR!
