The Monday Chiller #5...


While the rest of the world is talking hard about The White Stripes, i'm gonna post a little tune by The Black Keys, another American blues-rock band that started to recieve recognition only a few months after people took interest in the Stripes. It's fair to say that so far they have been overshadowed by their colour-coded counterparts in terms of a mainstream audience, but to those fans who know the truth, they are one of the hottests bands out there. This track is taken from their 2006 album Magic Potion and if you like it then maybe you should invest in their back catalogue instead of Icky Thump. Just a thought.

The Black Keys are fantastic. Their hard-driven blues rock is second to none, and they have a heck of a knack for writing tunes around it. In fact, they're hands-down my second-favorite modern band.

After the White Stripes. :)

'colour-coded counterparts' - excellent writing my friend!
