Under the Covers: Lake Street Dive - I Want You Back (Jackson 5 Cover)

Feels Like: Aloe Blacc, Amy Winehouse, Adele, Norah Jones

Upright Bass. Drums. Trumpet.  Even if you don't not know it yet, sometimes that's all you need.  Hailing from Brooklyn, Lake Street Dive have stripped down this R&B classic to its barest and it works, mostly thanks to the amazing voice of lead singer Rachael Price, which can go from belting to hushed at the drop of a pin.  Shout out to Topher for the tip.
