Alabama Shakes - Sounds & Color

Tuesday, May 05, 2015

The new Alabama Shakes is more experimental then their debut album, which, in my mind, is a good thing. Andrea Warner from  Exclaim! sums up the album nicely, saying:
[a] deliberately weird record, but authentically weird; it's chaotic yet cohesive, full of sound, colour and unshakable vision.
Brittany Howard stretches out as a songwriter, proving that their very tight first album wasn't a fluke. While not as hard as Boys & Girls, Alabama Shakes have released an album that is a soulful blend of R&B and good old fashioned rock n roll. It is good that they were signed to ATO records.

ATO Records mission is to fully develop each artist and each release with sufficient time and attention. Most labels would expected more of the same, but this album, with its fuzzed out guitars and quiet spaces shows a band that wants to evolve with a label that will let them.

This is a great album by a great band. It earns three ad half stars honestly.
