Sound & Color by Alabama Shakes

From RNZ Music, 7:30 pm on 5 May 2015

Nick Bollinger reviews the highly anticipated sophomore set from Alabama Shakes.

Alabama Shakes Sound Color The title song is based around a vibraphone, played by vocalist Brittany Howard. Other tracks employ the dynamics of Led Zeppelin or resemble a southern-fried Strokes. And yet Sound and Colour, the follow-up to Alabama Shakes highly successful debut, is still full of the soulfulness that defined the earlier album. Rocking and emotional, it lives up to some daunting expectations.

Songs Featured: Sound and Colour, Dunes, The Greatest, This Feeling, Gimme All Your Love
