But these four gents are at the nexus of so many different projects and sounds from the Yellowhammer State, with some of its members logging time in the Alabama Shakes and the whole group touring as the backing band for singer/songwriter Donnie Fritts. As well, the group helps run Single Lock Records, a label that has released the work of Alabaman heroes like John Paul White (The Civil Wars) and St. Paul and the Broken Bones.

Their songs breeze by, urged forward by chiming guitar lines and melodies that seep into your skin like lotion.
