Alabama Shakes – Boys & Girls (2012)
This is what the Los Angeles Times said about this Athens, Alabama based band’s debut album released in April 2012.
“The Alabama Shakes’ first album, “Boys & Girls,” is an electric jolt that anyone who loves blues-based rock music should track down immediately. Consisting of three men and one young explosion named Brittany Howard on vocals and guitar, the group, which formed in northern Alabama in 2009, offers stripped down truth, minus any affectation, histrionics or irony.”
Here’s the title track.
