Lately, it seems like everyone is talking about the Alabama Shakes, and with good reason—the young quartet (its members met in high school) celebrates timeless, down-home R.&B. and soul, and the bespectacled front woman Brittany Howard has a voice for the ages. Listen to “Hold On,” from their début album, “Boys & Girls”– Visit our Listening Booth to discover new artists and songs. This week: The Alabama Shakes, Amadou & Mariam, Emily Wells, Bassnectar, Curtis Salgado and Dayna Kurtz.
These are my people.
