What’s the best kind of music? Obviously it’s a tough question to answer and probably doesn’t have an objectively right answer. Except that the objectively correct answer is soul music. Instead of arguing with us, instead you should learn how right we are by ordering Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings’ new album Give the People What They Want. Because if it’s anything like the group’s previous albums, it will be track after track of danceable, full0throated soul tunes carried by Sharon Jones’ impressive pipes. The Brooklyn-born band has been pumping out soul-revival gems for four albums now, and are ready to get your feet moving again with their new album coming out in January

But why wait until January? If you pre-order the vinyl for $22.99, Daptone Records will also send you a two song vinyl 45″ right now. And act fast: the first 300 vinyl orders come on sweet blue marble vinyl and if you go the CD route, the first 200 will be signed by the Queen of Modern Soul herself, Sharon Jones. $22.99 from the Daptone Records online store
