Are you ever alone and you turn on "that song" that completely transforms your mood? You know, that song you turn on at max volume, sing along to and very quickly find yourself getting loose, in both mind and body. You'll think about teleporting in that moment to a particular place that sets you free. My song as of late is "Always Alright" by Alabama Shakes. Lead singer-guitarist Brittany Howard's soulful, deep, vocals bring me to a raw and authentic place. I saw them perform in New Orleans in May and would see them again in a heartbeat. Their 2012 album (above) is excellent in addition to the single release of "Always Alright".
