Who Is Thunderbitch?

It's like getting a bonus!

By , Columnist
Only four months ago, Alabama Shakes released their second album, Sound & Color. Easily enough, the new album was met with critical acclaim. Fueled by the bluesy and soulful vocal style of Brittany Howard, fused with rock and roll, Alabama Shakes has become one of this new millennium's success stories. This kind of all-encompassing attention, with plenty of touring to support the new album, should keep anyone involved plenty busy. Right?

Well, apparently not for Brittany. Recently, a website went up using the domain name of Thundabetch. On that site was a pretty darned good album streaming in full. The name of the album was simply, Thunderbitch.

"Thunderbitch" turns out to be Brittany Howard, giving voice to songs she liked that probably might not fit on an Alabama Shakes album, which is okay by us. Thunderbitch is a stand-alone album that strongly highlights the further vocal abilities of Ms. Howard. Brittany, it would seem, cannot rest. Good for us!

After listening to the new Brittany Howard album (here), you can buy it via iTunes, or order a reasonably-priced vinyl LP of the title.

But no matter what you do, if you're a fan of Alabama Shakes, especially Brittany Howard, don't let this day draw to a close without listening to Thunderbitch. It's a free stream so you're not losing anything.

Thanks, Brittany!
