Every music fan should be excited this week as the Alabama Shakes release their debut album, Boys & Girls (available for iTunes download now). From the first moment I heard Brittany Howard’s voice I was infatuated and just loved her band’s sound. To me, Alabama Shakes are a throwback to an era when the best music was being made and creativity was at an all time high. Do yourself a favor, get this album, crank it up and just listen. This is what rock and roll is!
They are the up-and-comers with the biggest buzz right now (I told you to hop on the train last November) and if you have the opportunity to catch them live this summer, do not miss out (I’m getting mine finally, at Bonnaroo).
