"Complexity is what makes Alabama Shakes so intriguing. The Athens, Ga.–based Southern rock band has roots in the local punk rock scene but sounds steeped in the old-school traditions of Muscle Shoals. On their rollicking single “Hold On,” Brittany Howard belts lyrics with Joplinesque abandon to Heath Fogg’s Skynardian guitar riffs. If “Hold On” is any indication, patience really is a virtue." -- iTunes Store
