Happy release day to our friends Alabama Shakes! Their second album ‘Sound & Color’ is out today.

The band have been super busy, visiting Australia and killing it at Bluesfest.
Our friends at The Herald Sun had a chat with the band when they were down under and gave their album a whopping 5 stars! Read the interview HERE.

As The Saturday Paper says “Ladies and gentlemen, this is the real thing: real music made by real musicians for right now.”

BRITTANY HOWARD JOINS SUPERJAM

Recently Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes joined the likes of Jim James (My Morning Jacket), John Oates (Hall & Oates), Larry Graham (Sly and the Family Stone, Grand Central Station) and Zigaboo Modeliste (The Meters) for a very special performance known as the Rock & Soul Superjam at Bonnaroo 2013.

The below video is a preview of an eight piece documentary which tells the story of how these extraordinary musicians, most of whom had never played together, performed a two hour set live after only a few days of rehearsal. Each piece of the documentary will showcase one song from the epic Rock & Soul Superjam that took place at Bonnaroo 2013.
