If you like Alabama Shakes (which from reading your blog I’m aware you do), you should check out Shovels and Rope. Just caught them last night in DC and they were amazeballs. A bit country twangy but it works.  “Birmingham” is a killer.

Amazeballs. indeed. Good call, Joe:

“Birmingham” is the first single from O’ Be Joyful, the debut album from Shovels & Rope. Produced by The Moving Picture Boys, this video was shot in the band’s home city of Charleston, SC.
