This blog has closely followed the meteoric rise of the Alabama Shakes, and knows all about the revival of soul in the newest generation of indie rockers. So I’d like to introduce a softer act from Brooklyn called The Lone Bellow. Their self titled debut, which came out this January, is full of shimmering guitars and hand-clapping singalongs. I’m personally more drawn to their core acoustic lineup, which you can listen below. There’s nothing quite like a call-and-response on acoustic guitar and mandolin. What better way to pine?
