I’m more than stoked that I came across Alabama Shakes, and I know you will be too! They are the feel good band of the year and a definite band to keep an eye out for in 2012. Brittany Howard, the lead singer of Alabama Shakes has a voice like no other, she has the lung capacity and vocal range that will make heads turn. Their follow-up to the 2011 self titled EP, Alabama Shakes EP, will be out and available April 9, with the title Boys&Girls. Check out a couple of songs below, including an amazing Led Zeppelin cover, “How Many More Times”.

“How Many More Times”

“Hold On”

Amazing single from Kevn Kinney and The Golden Palominos- “Set in Stone”

From the new album, A Good Country Mile by Kevn Kinney and The Golden Palominos, I have found my song of the day and probably of the week. If you like Tom Petty and Neil Young, then you’re going to love this little ditty. So grab this tune, hop in your car, windows down, and cruise the town. Sometimes simplicity is key!
