Soul Revival – Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings
Analogue, Analogue, Analogue
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are considered spearheads of a revivalist movement that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music as it was at its height in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. Part of the way this is achieved is to shun modern digital recording methods in favour of using traditional analogue recording equipment. The instruments used by the band may also be considered limited to those that would have been available up until the mid-’70s. Steeped within the gilded and gritty sounds of gospel, soul and funk, this nine-piece Brooklyn collective has continued to amaze fans, djs, critics, record collectors, and bloggers the world-over with their authentic, heart-felt sound.
