GC gets the Alabama Shakes

Belatedly I've caught up with Alabama Shakes, the blues/soul/rock band fronted by Brittany Howard, who sings like the lovechild of Otis Redding and Janis Jopling.
They've attracted the attention of Jack White and done Letterman and over here Jools Holland; and have a wave-making debut album Boys & Girls.
Its Wikipedia entry charts the band's increasing popularity since its creation in 2009. The official video of Hold On tells all you need to know about Alabama Shakes' future trajectory.
