The debut album from the much tipped alabama shakes on rough trade. this is one of the few bands where you actually have to believe the hype. alabama shakes are a four-piece soul band from athens, georgia. they describe their music as "just like going to a rock 'n' roll church." alabama shakes recorded the album at the bomb shelter in nashville, producing and mixing it themselves. the sound is swampy dirty south rock, blues, and soul delivered with punk rock fervor. it's organic, soulful and emotional. singer-guitarist brittany howard's deeply emotive vocals are what has helped this band turn so many heads. she manages to encapsulate the sound of marvin gaye, janis joplin and jack white all into one. 2012 will be ruled by the alabama shakes.

Last FM Information on Alabama Shakes

Please note the information is done on a artist keyword match and data is provided by LastFM.
Alabama Shakes is an American rock band formed in Athens, Alabama, United States in 2009. The group consists of lead singer Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, bassist Zac Cockrell, and drummer Steve Johnson. Here is some background information on Alabama Shakes from the Hold On Songfacts: The R&B-inspired Rock band Alabama Shakes originated when lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard approached bassist Zac Cockrell during a high school psychology class in Athens, Alabama and the pair began meeting after school to write songs. Howard and Cockrell then approached Punk-Rock drummer Steve Johnson, who was working at a local music store, to join the band. The trio recorded some of their songs in a studio in Decatur, Alabama and subsequently recruited guitarist Heath Fogg on his return to Athens from college in Tuscaloosa. Originally christened "The Shakes," the band later renamed themselves The Alabama Shakes in order to differentiate themselves from other bands with their original name. The Alabama foursome gained widespread media attention after releasing a self-titled four-song EP in September 2011 and Rough Trade Records in the United Kingdom and ATO Records in the United States signed them two months later. Hold On was released as the first single from their debut album, Boys & Girls . Read more on Last.fm.
