Every so often a band comes along whose music unites both critics and fans alike. A musical experience that satisfies our craving for nostalgia whilst sating our appetite for new experiences. This year a band emerged from Athens, Alabama who accomplished both parts of that mission. Alabama Shakes are the band whose debut album reached Number Three in the U.K and saw them nominated for three 2013 Grammy's. One of those nominations was for 'Hold On' the opening track from the album Boys and Girls which was voted best track of the year by Rolling Stone magazine.
