Boys & Girls is the debut studio album from American rock band Alabama Shakes.

It was released in April 2012 and was recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN.

Produced and mixed by the band members, the album is a vibrant fusion of swampy, dirty South rock, blues and soul delivered with punk rock fervor.

"The Alabama Shakes’ first album, "Boys & Girls," is an electric jolt that anyone who loves blues-based rock music should track down immediately. Consisting of three men and one young explosion named Brittany Howard on vocals and guitar, the group, which formed in northern Alabama in 2009, offers stripped down truth, minus any affectation, histrionics or irony.” - Los Angeles Times

“Fronted by ex-mail carrier Brittany Howard – a slow-boil belter shaped by punk and roots rock as much as the Stax-Volt/Muscle Shoals sound she so mightily channels – the Alabama-based Shakes sprang from Southern soul's cradle. Their debut is a set of lean, hooky originals about the big stuff: love ("Be Mine"), death ("On Your Way"), human struggle ("Hold On") and getting crunk ("Goin' to the Party"). It earned them a fan base that includes Robert Plant and My Morning Jacket, and it suggests that even greater things lie ahead.”- Rolling Stone

Listed as one of Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2012.
