Belle Adair

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Once all those heat-seeking outlets decide that Nashville trend pieces are passé, they might as well shift their focus one state south. There are tons more bands where the Alabama Shakes came from, including Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, Banditos, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, and the Muscle Shoals-based quintet Belle Adair. The group shares its keyboard player, Ben Tanner, with the Shakes, and has an album on the way on Single Lock Records, the indie label Tanner launched with John Paul White of the Civil Wars. (They’ll also be releasing the Broken Bones’ debut this summer, which suggests just how small-world the scene is down there.) Belle Adair operates on different impulses than a lot of these other acts: Instead of riled up and rootsy, the band’s full-length debut The Brave and the Blue is chilled out, cosmic and expansive, like Sea Change-era Beck or post-Summerteeth Wilco.
