[STAX FIFTH AVENUE] The little-band-that-could of 2012, Alabama Shakes leapt from the backwaters of Dixie to collect Grammy nods, celebrity fans and a cultural ubiquity yet to crest, while serving testament to the undying primacy of that old time rock’n’soul. If the band’s tale sounds familiar, the well-worn riffs of last spring’s debut full-length, Boys & Girls, hinted at cover-band origins a bit too clearly. Still, an apprenticeship hawking shit-kicker standards doubtlessly sharpened the troupe’s dual guitar swagger and focused the bottomless ferocity of frontwoman Brittany Howard, and a trail of breathless converts from this sold-out tour proves well enough there’s life in the old songs yet.
