belated Tunes: Booker T. Jones, “Representing Memphis”

I knew I was in for a treat about five seconds into this one–this is seriously funky comfort food. And then it turned into an unlikely, heartfelt duet between Sharon Jones of Dap Kings fame and Matt Berninger of The National. In other words, this track is novel, musically rich, and features two of the best voices in the alternative world: it’s like a deep-friend candy bar with all of the nutrients you need. From soul mogul Booker T. Jones’ 2011 album The Road to Memphis, the follow-up to 2009’s Grammy-winning Potato Hole, enjoy “Representing Memphis.”
