Alabama Shakes “HOLD ON”
from Boys & Girls (ATO www.atorecords.com 2012) N —Brittany Howard, Zac Cockrell, Steve Johnson and Heath Fogg make up Alabama Shakes who come in at #23 for the year. Probably much higher if their 2011 EP didn't have 4 of the best songs from this, their debut full-length.
Kelly Hogan “Plant White Roses”
from I Like to Keep Myself in Pain (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2012) N —At #20 comes Kelly Hogan from her first album in 11 years. She enlisted the help of friends like Andrew Bird, John Wesley Harding and the late Vic Chesnutt to write songs and is backed by a band featuring Booker T. This track is from Stephen Merritt.
