My World (Do Right!)
Lee Fields seems like Sharon Jones’s male counterpart – a soul singer who’s been doing his thing for decades and makes music that sounds like the last 35 years never went down. My World finds Fields channelling James Brown’s softer side amid an uplifting array of classic soul hallmarks like horn solos, sweeping violins, spoken word parts and drums that jump like a kid wearing snow pants who has to pee. Among highlights, his spirited verses on Ladies and cautionary wail on Money I$ King.
Top track: Money I$ King.
