Just when you think you can’t fall deeper in love with Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, she pulls even harder on your heartstrings. A mere four months after the release of the musical marvel that is Sound and Color, Howard surprised the world this past week with yet another gift: Thunderbitch.
With their bio stating, “Rock’n’roll. The end,” Thunderbitch’s debut LP displays that, and then some, in all of its edgy glory. With tracks titled “Leather Jacket,” “I Just Wanna Rock n Roll,” and “Wild Child,” Thunderbitch is a heavenly rock’n’roll masterpiece.
A standout track is “Eastside Party,” which has clear nods to 1950’s rock, with the instrumentals paying homage to Grease classic, “Greased Lightning” packed with a punch.
Thank you, Brittany Howard.
