EDITORS’ NOTES

The spirit of Muscle Shoals is alive and well in the soulful music of Alabama Shakes. Anchored by Brittany Howard's raspy golden pipes, the group updates the sound of R&B and gospel for the new millennium, backing up Aretha Franklin-worthy melodies with the lockstep rhythms of ‘00s indie music. Songs like “Hold On” are as warm and homey as a sweet sunset on a summer night, balancing Howard's lonesome moans with rollicking country-rock grooves, while vibraphone-laden tracks like “Sound & Color” show their quirky knack for making doo-wop and soul as fresh and vibrant as ever.
