Alabama Shakes brought down the house on SNL this weekend. We're sometimes amazed at how even great bands can sound really terrible on SNL, but these guys were perfect. Brittany Howard is a revelation.
I hear their music described as blues-rock and garage-rock, but I think their album sounds more like Muscle Shoals swampy 60's soul and R&B. It's more Janis Joplin than Jack White. Either way, love it!
