I think I’ve mentioned in the past that I’ve been listening to a lot of Maximum Fun podcasts. On a recent Bullseye, I heard an ad for something called Sound Opinions, a new music podcast. Today they introduced me to Alabama Shakes. They’re a brand new soul band from (predictably) Alabama and they are super-duper talented. The singer puts me in mind of a bluesier/gospelly Macy Gray but the music is pretty different from her stuff. As you may or may not know, the last line of these news posts is a song lyric with a link to a video of the song. Today’s is one of theirs and I encourage you to check it out!
