i have been eagerly awaiting the new black keys album, brothers, for a while now and it’s finally here! they are one of the few bands that i buy every album they release because i know it will be good – i pretty much wore out their last album, attack & release, from listening to it so often. i love the grungy feel of their music and even though they’re only two dudes they sound like a full band when they perform live, which is pretty impressive. their music is great for driving- it definitely gets you amped up! i’ll put some on when i’m driving down to bonnaroo, where i’ll get to see them play! they’ll be at wakarusa and lollapalooza this summer too, and i’m also seeing them at the river stage at great plaza in philadelphia in july (with the morning benders). i’m sure you’ll hear about it on the blog!
now listen to a couple of new songs (the first two) from brothers and some of my favorites from their past albums – i love their cover of the beatles song “she said, she said.”
