Alabama Shakes are a double rarity in being both absolutely aptly named and absolutely deserving of all their hype. The Jack White-endorsed quintet come from a small town in Alabama. More importantly, they not only shake but also rattle, roll and do everything else to ears and body that the most rumbustious soul-rock and roots music can. However galvanising the licks and riffs of her bandmates, it's 22-year-old frontwoman Brittany Howard and her gloriously sandpaper voice that fire this engine: mighty and crackling enough to warrant thoughts of Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin. (The Guardian)
