Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

I stumbled across Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings not too long ago and I was blown away that a contemporary band today could have captured that truly authentic soul sound. BLOWN AWAY! I heard their cover of Janet Jackson's, "What have you done for me lately" and it still sounds like they did it 20 years prior to Miss Jackson. Then it all clicked when I heard that producer Mark Ronson wrangled in the Dap-Kings for Amy Winehouse's last 2 albums (which also blew me away). So it all makes sense. Now it's like...Amy who?

So, this morning I am just tickled pink to find this the first official video of theirs (that I've seen) other than live footage. It's done so right! Filmed with two vintage TV cameras bought on E-Bay for $50 dollars each. Ladies and gentlemen, I present this generation's soul salvation:
