Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings!
Titled Give The People What They Want, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings' newest is born from the knowledge that only years of relentless touring and collaborating can bring to the table. Featuring the unbridled soul and punch you've come to expect ever since their emergence in 2002, Give The People What They Want promises to be an album whose funk grooves & sweet hooks will stay in your head and heart for days on end.
To make sure the new year is extra sweet, our friends and neighbors over at Taza will be providing a wonderful spread of coffee and pastries! They've been serving our favorite cuppa for about a year now and have become our go-to spot when we need a caffeine fix. We love Taza and are stoked (no, that's not the coffee speaking) to be working alongside them as we spin Sharon's newest album. It's a match made in heaven!
It gets better: tomorrow's brunch will be the first time you can hear the album in its entirety, anywhere! Not only that, but we'll be the only store in LA to be premiering the record that day! We've also got a test press of the album to give away, some very limited edition 7"s for anyone who pre-orders the album & some Daptone slipmats - these will only be available the day of the party!
Alright, that was a lot of excitement. Take a breather and when you're ready, give a listen to lead single "Retreat!" off of Give The People What They Want below. Phew!
