The two songs below are from early releases on Daptone Records, around 2002 or so, and they're pretty indicative of what I like about the label. If you were to listen to these without knowing anything about them, you'd have a hard time guessing when they were recorded. You might not even be able to peg exactly what era they're emulating, or if it's even intentional. You know what else is cool? Music like this has no expiration date. You can go buy it now, or put it off until you're sixty. But, remember this, when you're at a weak moment and you;re tempted to take a chance on something current based on some jackoff blogger's raves, take it from this jackoff. Both of these LPs should take precedent. Says me. The jackoff.
