alabama shakes ep

Rough Trade

limited import tour cd

Released: 16th Jan 2012


out of stock

earthy roots’n’blues, influenced by church music, chuck berry, sister rosetta tharpe & keith richards oozes southern cool.

a broad, mellow & loving ride led by the honey & bark tones of singer brittany howard. they all went to the same alabama county school & their rough-hewn southern sound brings a vibrant urgency to an impassioned take on the blues-rock-soul template. this ep has a roundly warm vibe, as if the black keys just had to slow down a little to take in some majestic view of the mississippi. in other words it’s steeped in the soulful swing of their influences, but happily swoons us past that retro-trap with top notch songcraft & nary a whiff of calculated appropriation.
