1. the quality of being divine
AKA Alabama Shakes
Oh hot damn. Don't get me started. Never have I ever been able to answer the question 'What is your favorite band?' now I think I have the answer: these guys. Oh should I say, this lady and her comrades.
The whole gang
|Members: Brittany Howard, Heath Fogg, Zac Cockrell, and Steve Johnson|
They have such a poetic, precious conception which makes them all the more irresistible. Taken directly from the About section of their website:
The story of the Alabama Shakes begins in a high school psychology class in Athens, Alabama. Brittany Howard, who had started playing guitar a few years earlier, approached Zac Cockrell and asked if he wanted to try making music together. "I just knew that he played bass and that he wore shirts with cool bands on them that nobody had heard of," says Howard.
Not much else I can say to do these kids justice. Continue on to experience the pure and soulful strums...
