There’s something really refreshing about watching Alabama Shakes perform. Part of it is how organic it is, how it’s just a band and their instruments. But there’s something else about the soulful Southerners’ rock. With so many cool kids emerging as new acts to look out for, Alabama Shakes stand out as completely unpretentious, completely about the music. When you watch, you can’t help but pick up that down-to-earth vibe from the group.
