ALABAMA SHAKES On Fire On Brand New Longplayer… ‘SOUND & COLOR’

19 April 2015

Band: ALABAMA SHAKES (Athens, Alabama – formed in 2009)…

Album: SOUND & COLOR – their 2nd LP after towering 2012 debut ‘Boys and Girls

Score: After a couple of spins the newborn sounds more varied than the debut LP. The whole now & then soul spectrum, including funk & gospel, gets a fervent Alabama Shakes treatment, from jazzy moods to psychedelic vibes. The majestic power voice of Brittany Howard, the former 22-year-old former truck driver and postal worker, is more than ever the band’s essential instrument. This new longplayer confirms her status as the modern soul queen…

Highlights: Don’t Wanna Fight / Dunes / The Greatest / Shoegaze / Gemini
