Music Monday: Alabama Shakes

Alabama Shakes are everywhere at the moment; on the cover of the NME, on Jools Holland, being written about in The Guardian, in session for 6Music, playlisted on Radio One... by rights, that fact should make them get right up my nose, the 'Next Big Thing' label being one that's guaranteed to annoy.  But actually, they're so good that it's impossible to feel anything other than admiration.  Their gig on Friday in Birmingham was a triumph, the band working their way through debut album Boys & Girls as well as playing some new material.  I don't have time to post a full gig review, or even much of a usual Music Monday ramble (the endless task of getting myself sorted for America continues...), so without further ado, here's their performance of Hang Loose from Jools Holland a few weeks back.
