Alabama Shakes haven't quite taken over the world yet, but they've still got plenty of time—after all, their top-10 debut album Boys & Girls is still less than two months old. That record is a fine document of the Shakes' soulful, Southern-rock stride, but the live show is truly where the band starts shedding sparks. With an incredible powerhouse singer in the form of Brittany Howard and an innate understanding of how to keep the beat both swinging and tight, these Alabama youngsters can play rings around musicians triple their age. Expect to be hearing a lot more from 'em; Alabama Shakes aren't going anywhere soon. NED LANNAMANN
