(Brittany Howard, Zac Cockrell, Steve Johnson, Heath Fogg)
[2009.-…], Athens, AL, United States |
|This hurricane from Athens, Alabama takes out everything in its path, from pure ancestral soul to the blues and rock sound of the South that produced the band. Singer Brittany Howard’s voice is irresistible live, a sincere scream that hits you right in the gut and always finds your weak spot. As for the instruments, there is a veritable landslide of raw guitar—showing a punk influence—sweetened by old-school dissonance from an organ. This group lives up to its name, with a mind-blowing variety of melodies and rhythms that will shake you to your core.
