Â I have been enjoying how the Stax and Motown sound has been getting a revival lately. The poster girl of this revival, Amy Winehouse, has been a let down. Back to Black was great album, but since then she has been a zombie on stage and a nut-job in the news. Anyone who says that she was great at Lollapalooza is a liar. So who do you turn to? Why not the band that backed her up on Back to Black, the Dap Kings. Like the Booker T. And the MGs for Stax Records, they are the house band for Dap Records. Sharon Jones has a phenomenal voice too. Its tough to be cool when one of your members has a unibrow, but they pull it off. Check out their myspace or hypemachine for a listen.
