Song of the Day – Friday 3/19/2010 Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings (SXSW) March 19, 2010

Sharon Jones and her nine-piece Brooklyn band have re-created the funk/soul sounds of Motown and Stax Records so authentically that you’ll swear it’s 1965.

Today, Sharon and The Dap-Kings will be sharing Spin Magazine’s SXSW mainstage with Hole (that’s right, Courtney Love and her newly re-formed band will be making their U.S. debut) Miike Snow, and Rogue Wave—now that’s a motley crew of a line-up that I’d love to see!

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ new album, I Learned the Hard Way drops on 4/6/2010…
