Alabama Shakes

The Alabama bar band, lead by the explosive voice of Brittany Howard, is undeniably one of the great live acts going — in addition to Coachella, they've got upcoming dates at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, the U.K.'s T in the Park and more. Their killer new LP, Sound & Color, hits shelves a week after Coachella's second weekend, taking their sound to new directions. In the latest issue, Rolling Stone says it runs "from volcanic thrashers ('The Greatest') to silky soul ('Dunes') to spacey psychedelic-soul jams ('Future People')." Said Howard, "When it came time to gather all the songs, we thought, 'What kind of record is this?' And we said, 'Very strange.' But I love it."
