Boys & Girls – Alabama Shakes (Why Can’t We Be Best Friends Anymore?)

Song: Boys & Girls

Artist: Alabama Shakes

How? Why am I just discovering them? Their album has been out about a week over a year.

I’m completely in love!

Love their live performances, and I would looooove to see them in concert.

The band is amazing, and Brittany sings with her whole body and she’s pretty amazing to watch, as well as listen to!

Alabama Shakes
The Shakes!

Had to add some more:

Alabama Shakes: Hold On

(No, I don’t wanna wait!)

Alabama Shakes – Rise to the Sun

All I believe in is a dream
I haunt the Earth though I am fully seen
In all my years I’ve never felt more sure than now
Well, I got to get off this rock somehow

I feel so homesick
Where’s my home
Where I belong
Where I was born
I was told to go
Where the wind would blow
And it blows away – away

Well, my eyes are full of stars
But I just can’t reach ’em, oh, how high they are
I got to believe what I’m seeing , ooh  maybe it could come true
But in a modern world that can be so hard to do

Good stuff!



Addiction-Mr. West (You Make Me Smile With My Heart)

Song: Addiction

Artist: Kanye West

Been on a bit of Kanye kick recently, forgot how much I love this song. Truth in these here lyrics (nice Etta James, “My Funny Valentine” sample too!):

“Why everything that’s supposed to bad make me feel so good?

Everything they told me not to is exactly what I would

Man, I tried to stop man, I tried the best I could

But (You make me smile)”

This is their one and only song out right now; can’t wait until they drop a whole something!

Heard mentions of an EP for Summer 2013 release?

I’m interested; hope so!
