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.

The Black Keys comparison is on target. I just recently got into Alabama Shakes, and I can’t…shake…the tunes. That was awful. 🙂
Brittany Howard’s voice is AWESOME. Her deep blues croon is tremendous
Black Keys and The Sheepdogs…very interesting! I just recently started listening to The Sheepdogs. Really cool band! I just saw Alabama Shakes last weekend and gotta say, Brittany Howard is really amazing! She’s got the “it” factor.
Sheepdogs were an it thing when I lived in Saskatoon. Local boys make good. Brittany is definitely a budding force.
