“New Shoes” (Live Guardian Session) (Video)

    To really experience the full force of Sharon Jones’s voice you need to see her live. Fortunately, the Guardian has obliged with video of a performance of the new Dap-Kings single “New Shoes,” which strips out the usual full-blooded approach her band takes for something far more intimate. Here, we get Jones backed by a set of backing singers and a simple electric guitar riff, all preceded by an explanation of what “New Shoes” is all about. It’s catchy stuff, full of the kind of bouncy soul-pop that mirrors classic tracks like Jackie Wilson’s infectious “Reet Petite.” Check it out below. [via The Guardian]
