Daptone, continuing to build out their roster around Sharon Jones, have signed UK r&b / soul singer James Hunter and his titular sextet. Hold On! the record's not due out until February 2016, but the first track just dropped and it's exactly what you'd expect if you've followed the Hunter's path.
Shawn Lee. Dude's got more musical stripes than a zebra. And he really can't go wrong. Check out his collaboration with Andy Platts as Young Gun Silver Fox and hear the pair absolutely slay yacht-rock.

If you follow this blog on the regular then you know I've talked about labels like Tru Thoughts, Finders Keepers, ZZK, Strut and Soundway. If you dug any of that stuff, then you're in luck. The fine folks behind those even finer record labels have banded together for the seventh installment of Label Love, a compilation featuring selections from their recent catalog. AND IT'S FREE. Get it, and then chase down full-lengths from the likes of Nicola Cruz, flako, Quantic presents The Western Transient and more and support the folks that put this thing together.
