The Black Keys :: Strange Times

Of all the bands I follow, only a few consistently put out fantastic albums. Out of those, only a handful continue to blow away audiences with their incredible live show. The Black Keys are one of those bands. This incredible blues-rock duo from Akron, Ohio is one to take note of. Luckily for all of us, they're about to release their fifth album, Attack & Release, on April 1. Produced by the infamous Dangermouse, the album has an old, roots rock feel to it, with Danger's signature flourishes sprinkled throughout. Here's the first single off of the new album:

Here's one of my favorite videos of the guys, playing their hit Your Touch.

This band is the light at the end of the tunnel of crappy rock music. I have been waiting to see them live for over a year and will be there when they open their tour of the new disc. I cannot wait.
