Menahan Street Band

It's been a brisk weekend of borough hopping for this humble DC dweller. Fortunately I managed to pick up a brilliant band in my travels. Hot off the Daptone label (well to be specific, the Dunham label, an imprint of Daptone), these guys are part Budos Band, part Amy Winehouse's backing band, part Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and all funky rhythm. The live show (which is coming to Brooklyn on the 20th for you lucky natives) is supposedly kick ass and involves a suite of horns and percussion filling the stage. Give it a listen - very cinematic, very urban, makes for some very easy listening.
