The train is coming and you better hop on board before you miss this group, the Alabama Shakes. Currently their four-song EP is available and it’s one you should definitely add to your collection. If you like multiple genres rolled into one (R&B, Soul, Rock, etc.), you’ll be a fan of this rising band. Plus I can’t get enough of Brittany Howard’s voice; she has soul running through her and an old school feel reminiscent of some female vocalists from the 60s. The only sad thing is I don’t know when I’ll have a chance to see them live. Here’s hoping for a trip out west, Las Vegas would be nice!
On a random note, it may be just me but the opening chords on “Hold On” have me thinking it’s a take on CCR’s “Down on the Corner.” I could be way off but that’s what I hear.
