Put another dime in the juke box baby

If you haven't read anything about Alabama Shakes, the much-touted rock band who hail from Athens, Alabama, allow me to sum up the press coverage so far:

"Blah blah blah real music blah blah blah impassioned vocals rhubarb rhubarb cut it live blah waffle spirit of rock and roll blah blah nonsense next big thing waffle nonsense celebrity fan Russell Crowe"
But PLEASE don't let that put you off, because they are genuinely something special. In particular Brittany Howard - the bespectacled, corckscrew-curled singer - is one of the most stop-you-in-your-tracks frontwomen you have ever seen. Which is why the band's decision to release a live performance of their new single Hold On is such a masterstroke.

A brilliant song, performed brilliantly. What more do you need to know?

Alabama Shakes - Hold On
