JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound preview LP with free song

Talk about generous: Not only has indie-rock’s recent infatuation with soul has yielded Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, it has also given us JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound.

Still perhaps best known for their jumped-up cover last year of Wilco’s “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart,” there’s more to the Chicago crew than that. The group released a 2009 debut, “The Beat of Our own Drum,” performed at Rahm Emanuel’s inauguration as mayor of Chicago and featured surprise guest Jeff Tweedy on stage this summer at Wilco’s second Solid Sound Festival.

Now the band is back with a new album, “Want More,” due Oct. 27 on Bloodshot. To celebrate, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound is giving away the sweet soul shouter “Everything Will Be Fine.”
