Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
Never one to shy away from a big tune, 'Retreat!' is just that - part Northern Soul monster, part anthemic sisterhood soul and part tribute to Phil Spector's immersive wall of sound. Of course, the musicianship is as near-perfect as you have come to expect from the Dap-Kings - under the ever-watchful eye of producer Gabriel Roth. But it's miss super-lungs herself who really takes the curtain call.
