I second Charles Bradley, pretty good documentary on him called Soul Of America gives the details about him and if you need anymore proof than this track here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bcqb7kzekoc
then you just can't dig it maaan!
Don't really check current music but this group called Wilde Belle was recommended to me by a plumber but I'm not sure if it's this year or last...I like this tune here...bit poppy so if that's a problem don't bother but I like the groove http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLKOmXm6W3s
Also been meaning to check a group called Allah-Las, self titled album...garage business but samples sounded alright...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiJYecS0vU0
I don't know if reissues count but Light In The Attic released Roky Erickson's The Evil One...Killer! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7aLXehSXAo
This didn't come out this year but if you like rock n' roll you might do well to check it out, it's called Holy Mackerel! Pretenders to Little Richard's Throne here's a cut http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8UBXrGM_B0
Clips and samples help if you can provide them fellas otherwise they're just names of bands or records.
