Music Monday – Alabama Shakes

Though the band name sounds like a withdrawal symptom you might get while kicking a habit for a certain kind of distilled libation, there’s nothing unpleasant about the Alabama Shakes.

In fact, I can’t stop listening to their album.  You should give this song a try, I hope it suits your fancy.

 




More to come on my crazy two weeks, including building furniture, moving, brushes with mortality, and not giving a shit what other people think. Oh, and a ton (a veritable tonne) of reading! (Exclamation points! En Masse!) But for now, enjoy this.

 Parents: This ablum contains swears, and is not optimum for children. Which is really unfortunate, because I think this kind of music, is really important for children.

    So dramatic. :p I can’t wait to read your “writer’s version” of the last two weeks, especially your brush with mortality and your new addiction. Oh wait, you didn’t mention the addiction…

    I wonder what genre/ but don’t really care what “they” call it, I call this simply RED HOT Southern Rock! I know, being as I’m a GRITS (Girl Raised in the South). =D I love this song.

    Her voice also sounds a lot like Janis Joplin. Makes me want to link to some of her music: Me and Bobby McGee

    Which inevitably leads one to Joe Cocker:(the male gravelly) The Letter (1970)

    Or another back to the roots, sweet Classic Southern Rock: Doobie Brothers: O Black Water
