Hey y’all.  How you been.  I have enjoyed major summer and have barely had time to read and comment let alone post.  Figured that this tune was a good segue to getting back on the keyboard.  The Alabama Shakes are a band out of Athens, Alabama (not Georgia, nor Greece) with an outstanding album released in April of 2012.  Instant classic????  I vote yes.  Remind me of Black Keys with a dose of Sheepdogs.

Hope to post a few things in the coming few weeks, then get back on the beam full-time again in September.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. a gripping life

    Wow, what a voice and talent!! Thanks once again, John!

  2. Great pick today! Thanks for introducing me to this band!

    • You’re welcome Dave. How you been doing.

      • I’ve been doing pretty well. Busy with med school applications. I applied to 24 schools (and may apply to 3 or 4 more), and each time you make it through the initial screening, they send you a secondary application with at least one new essay question – most have 2 questions. It’s a big process, but totally worth it.

        Looking forward to your big trip?

  3. Nice, liked it a lot.

  4. Dig this track! Checked these guys out a while ago and liked what I heard from the beginning.

I Would Love To Hear From You
