Hold on, hold on. Alabama Shakes are really doing something good here. First of all, I didn’t even know the lead singer of the band was a woman until I watched their music video because her voice has this awesome soulful androgynous quality to it that doesn’t lend itself fully to either gender. Brittany fits somewhere in between Janice Joplin and the lead singer of tUnE yArDs, and I’m loving it. This video isn’t necessarily groundbreaking video-wise, but “Hold On” off their just-released album Boys and Girls is one of the best new songs out there.
