VIDEO: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings ‘Tell Me’

Continuing with their penchant for taking us way way back, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings' clip for "Tell Me" embodies the classic, scratchy feel of '60s television. Instead of a mere spoof, the video takes things to more authentic heights, with antique typography in the intro, shaky panels and imperfect swapping between color and black & white footage. Listening to their music and getting caught up in their imagery, it's hard to believe this music wasn't made decades ago.

  1. Hot! That's all I gotta say. And that's all that is need to be said.

  2. Exactly, N. It is hard to believe. This is something my Momma could have been rocking to in her teens. Everything about this video just works.
    The live performance of this was off the hook.
