(Oct 10, 2012): Alabama Shakes – Rise to the Sun

From the 2012 debut long player, Boys and Girls.  This band, which formed in Athens, Alabama, in 2009, has gotten a lot of coverage lately with the release of its first album earlier in the year.  It has a catchy retro sound that borrows from fifties R&B and soul music.  The band is fronted by guitar player Brittany Howard and her raspy vocals.
