What I’m Listening To

Hold On – The Alabama Shakes

I may be a little late to the party on the Alabama Shakes but they are far and away the best new band of 2012. The video needed to be the band just performing this song live – it helps capture the raw emotion and soul in the lead singer’s voice.

It’s a simple chorus but boy is it effective. “You’ve got to HOOLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDD OOOOONNNNNNNN.” I’m very excited about the Alabama Shakes and I recommend their debut album Boys and GirlsThey’re definitely not a one-hit wonder and their unique sound is something that the contemporary music scene has been sorely lacking.
