A Capella On Daptone

We knew Daptone Records was bold, leading a lively soul resurgence with invigorating bands like Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. Now Daptone is also daring, taking an admirable risk in releasing Como Now, a record of live a capella gospel performances recorded in Mt. Mariah Church in Como, Mississippi, on July 22, 2006. I love it for the sound, the soul, and the audacity. The first song here, Send Me, I'll Go, captures that independent spirit perfectly.
