A low-key 2011 EP put Alabama Shakes on the map, but it was the buzz about the band's live shows—a hurricane of stomping, shabby-chic Southern soul led by firecracker vocalist Brittany Howard—that made Boys & Girls among the most anticipated debuts of 2012. The opening single, "Hold On," lives up to all the breathless hype; the Stax-studied howler seems heir apparent to The Black Keys' broad appeal. Of course, even though that gale force opener is a tough act to follow, the band's straight-laced guitar hooks and strutting backbeats are a rock-solid underpinning for Howard's rambunctious vocal tear (check out also-ran singles like "I Found You" and "I Ain't the Same"). So while Boys & Girls is an excellent initiation for the young band, it also seems to infer that the best is still to come.
