BRITANNY HOWARD who released two albums as former frontwoman of Alabama Shakes   (Boys & Girls in 2012 and Sound & Color in 2015) and made also an album with
her side project Thunderbitch now goes solo. Her debut LP JAIME named after her sister who died of cancer when they were teenager will be out on 20 September.

“The title is in memoriam, and she definitely did shape me as a human being,” said Brittany Howard in a press message. “But, the record is not about her. It’s about me. I’m pretty candid about myself and who I am and what I believe. Which is why I needed to do it on my own.”.

Here’s lead single HISTORY REPEATS. A magnetic groover that will have an impact on
your senses and your limbs. Sounds like a funky James Brown buzz. Check the vibe here…

THE WHITE STRIPES scored a No 1 album in the UK on 24 June 2007, today 12 years ago with their sixth and final LP ICKY THUMP.  One of their rawest and back to the red-sharp blues roots of their first recordings. It peaked at #2 in the US and won a Grammy Award for best alternative album.

Here’s the ramshackle racket in full…

One of my fav highlights was RAG AND BONE, a simplistic yet funny story and musically
a big booming banger. It was released as a 7″ red vinyl single with every copy of British music mag NME on 6 June, two weeks before longplayer’s release. More info here. 

Here’s the Rag And Bone lyric clip…
