Slick one this. Four songs of sleazy girl-fronted blues pop that appears to genuinely be from Alabama. When I saw the band name I thought, 'I bet they're from Burton-on-Trent or something”, but no. Authenticity abounds. Fans of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are gonna like this I think. Apparently Adele is a fan, so that's the level of polish we're talking about here, but it's an uplifting and entirely inoffensive sound I don't mind too much, especially since there's still an element of rawness when they build up a head of steam in 'On Your Way'. If you like music with a big bluesy gospel/soul sound, you'll enjoy this.
