To call the Alabama Shakes a throwback band isn’t doing them justice, but there is a nostalgic, culturally deep feel to their female-fronted debut, Boys and Girls. Brittany Howard is the main vocal force over a combination of blues rock and Memphis soul. Simple, honest lyrics become epic and heart-twisting with Howard at the helm. It’s no wonder that the Alabama Shakes have gained the attention of NPR, Jack White, and major record labels in less than a year of hawking their EP on the indie circuit. If you’re looking for the perfect summer block party album, Boys and Girls is it.
