Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings - This Land Is Your Land

Usually I don’t post songs from the same band in such short quick succession but Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are an amazing band. This is them covering an American folk classic This Land Is Your Land written by Woody Guthrie. They don’t only do covers, they’ve released quite a few albums so head over to Daptone Records’ website and buy them all.

Sharon Jones and her band covering the best Bond theme of all time, and she does it justice, which is a pretty impressive feat.

Lyrics for you to sing to along with the song:

The Kooks-Naive (Jean Tonique Remix)

This has got to be one of my all time favorite songs, and this remix does not fail to disappoint-it just made it funkier. I couldn’t find any BG info on this guy, but there is his soundcloud page:

Young Liars-Colors

This is a indie quintet from Vancouver, BC, formed only 4 years ago. This is their first single ever, called Colors. This band has quite a fresh feel, and although unfortunately i have not had time to dig for and listen to their EP, this song has stuck me as different and quite listenable.

Great bass riff @ 3:36 btw.

Kid Creole & the Coconuts - Stool Pigeon

I want to live in this era and be able to strut my stuff like that guy in the brown suit and fedora.
