    Essentials for music snobbery include a love of really weird things, a strong dislike for any mainstream alternative rock band, and of course knowledge that Amy Winehouse basically stole the Dap Kings from their true mistress, a soulful sass-machine known as Sharon Jones. In anticipation of a Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings album next year, Ms. Jones is releasing a free MP3 of a Holiday tune she penned herself. Check out the details after the jump.

    Daptone is putting out a 7" today, but also giving away the tracks for free. The song features Ms. Jones wondering (astutely I might add), how Santa brings presents if there aren't any chimneys in the projects. The Dap Kings provide solid instruments with help from the Bushwick Philharmonic, and everything cheesy about Christmas seems a bit... funkier (the Earth, Wind, and Fire kind, not the week-old-milk kind). Check it out for yourself, its free! Send your thank yous to Santa Daptone Records Claus. -joe puglisi
