The Black Keys – “Howlin’ For You”

My winter blues are in full effect and I’ve been feeling quite lethargic lately. I didn’t feel up for blogging this weekend, sorry for that. I DID watch the Grammy Awards…in fact, I provided live commentary throughout the show on mvyradio’s twitter page, which was really fun. Some of the highlights for me were performances by Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers with Bob Dylan and Cee Lo’s hilarious rendition of “F*$# You” with help from Gwenyth Paltrow and some muppets!

I was also psyched to see Ray LaMontagne, Bela Fleck, Patty Griffin, Mavis Staples, and especially The Black Keys win for their respective albums. Brothers was one of my favorite albums of 2010, and the song “Howlin’ For You” is my favorite track on that album. The Black Keys recently put out a hilarious video for the song… you’ll have to click through to watch it on YouTube:

Best Of ’10: The Black Keys

The Black Keys – Brothers

This album is a sure bet for my Top 25 list. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are The Black Keys and these two guys really know how to put a song together. From the first track of Brothers, they had me on the edge of my seat to hear what was coming next. Their songs (and this album as a whole) sonically reach unexpected places that just sound SO GOOD. It’s a sound that’s tough to describe and almost impossible to compare to much else… a sound that got them 4 Grammy nominations!

Favorite tracks: “Everlasting Light”, “Tighten Up”, “Howlin’ For You”

NEW Music: The Black Keys

The Black Keys – Brothers

Dan Auerback and Patrick Carney produce music that is so freakin’ original!The beats, the lyrics, the mood, the energy…  are all incredibly focused and very ‘Black Keys’. This new album,  Brothers, has totally won me over. It’s actually getting worn out in my car’s CD player.

“Everlasting Light”, “Next Girl”, “Tighten Up”, “Howlin’ For You”, and “She’s Long Gone” start off the album SO strongly that I usually go back to the beginning everytime I get to track six. BUT… it’s definitely worth it to listen all the way through. From the groovy interlude, “Black Mud”, to the trippy sounds of the final track, “These Days”, each song brings you deeper into the hip, cool, unique world of The Black Keys.

The Black Keys – “Tighten Up”

I’ve really been loving Brothers, the new album from The Black Keys… it’s on a continuous loop in my car stereo. It’s the type of music that’s great to turn up LOUD as you’re driving with the windows down. Here’s the hilarious new video for their single, “Tighten Up”:
