The latest from the mighty Alabama Shakes is one of those special songs that feels like an archeological discovery – like a folk artifact, something singer Brittany Howard dug out of the loamy Alabama soil next to a railroad track. The song, from the new True Blood soundtrack, is also crazily catchy, with a loping roadhouse groove and a chirruping organ line. Howard sings, as usual, with panache, and, a bit unusually, with restraint, serving up sweet confessions: "I caught myself wishing I were the expression on your face/Gone today, then gone without a trace."
