One of the buzzier bands coming out at the end of last year has been Alabama Shakes. Let by front woman Brittany Howard, the band released a four song EP last September which garnered widespread media attention, with one of their songs You Ain’t Alone featured in the ad for jeweler Zales.
This attention led to the quick turnaround for the band’s debut album Boys & Girls. Full of Howard’s powerhouse vocals and heart-drenched emotion, each song in the record feels epic and draining. This is soulful blues-rock done right.
