Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard releases debut Thunderbitch record

Self-titled release is streaming now in full.

Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard has released her debut album under side-project Thunderbitch. The project also consists of members from Fly Golden Eagle and Clear Plastic Marks, and their first work is streaming in full.

Musically, this ten-track release brings forward a more cocksure, swaggering side to Howard than the one heard on Alabama Shakes’ ‘Sound & Color’, which came out this year. ‘Leather Jacket’ is a thunderous opener, while ‘Very Best Friend’ merges a classic Stateside boozer aesthetic with he artful songwriting.

Get the album on vinyl via the Alabama Shakes site or iTunes.

Natural Instinct: Caroline Polachek

With Chairlift, Caroline almost had to destroy the success she’d found to become creatively happy. On the release of solo LP ‘Pang’, she’s following that steadfast artistic path into new waters.
