Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, '100 Days 100 Nights' (Daptone)

7
100 Days 100 Nights
Critical Mass
Label: Daptone

by Josh Modell

It's wonderfully quixotic that the indie set -- not normally known for soulful exultation or, indeed, much more than mannered, fidgety whiteness -- has embraced 51-year-old belter Sharon Jones, whose songs sound old and new, wiggly and sensual, raw and cooked. Her crack band of Dap-Kings have enlivened everyone from Kanye to Amy Winehouse, but their most natural habitat is in Jones' Aretha-like tales of sex (the grinding "Let Them Knock"), independence (the bumping "Nobody's Baby"), and the good Lord himself (the slinky "Answer Me").
