the black keys – thickfreakness

While the vast majority of post-punk bands who have an obvious taste for the blues seem to enjoy taking the style apart and messing around with the bits and pieces, the Black Keys are the (relative) traditionalists within the subgenre. With their two-piece, no-bass format, there’s no room for clutter or wank, and the raunchy fuzz of Dan Auerbach’s guitar (and drummer Patrick Carney’s production) owes more to the Gories/Blues Explosion/White Stripes school of aural grime than anything else, but look past all that and the Black Keys are a straight-up blues band who could probably cut an album for Alligator if they were willing to clean up their act and fill out the lineup. And Alligator would doubtless be glad to have ’em — the Black Keys’s wail is hot, primal, and heartfelt, and Auerback’s lean but meaty guitar lines and room-filling vocals drag the blues into the 21st century through sheer force of will without sounding like these guys are in any way mocking their influences. In short, if you’re looking for irony, you’re out of luck; if you want to hear a rock band confront the blues with soul, muscle, and respect, then Thickfreakness is right up your alley. Points added for the fact that the Black Keys performed, recorded, and produced Thickfreakness all by their lonesome in a single day — further proof these guys are not messing around.

the black keys – Chulahoma: The Songs Of Junior Kimbrough

This seven-track EP is the Akron, Ohio, blues-rock duo’s swan song for esteemed blues label Fat Possum, and, fittingly, it’s comprised entirely of songs originally written and performed by the legendary Junior Kimbrough, one of the label’s most important discoveries. Kimbrough’s hill-country blues had and enormous impact on the Keys, and they treat songs like “Meet Me in the City” and “Keep Your Hands off Her” with the reverence they deserve, while at the same time adding their own sonic embellishments to Kimbrough’s songs as a reminder that the blues is far from a stagnant form. “Have Mercy on Me,” for example, becomes a dirgy, swampy psych-blues epic as a haunting organ line and Dan Auerbach’s fractured guitar licks lead the listener down a wonderfully dark musical back road. This brief, loving tip of the cap is a fitting reminder that as the form’s finest practitioners continue to pass away, the blues itself is still kicking hard.

Bombay bicycle club – flaws 2010


2010 release, a stunningly beautiful acoustic album by Bombay Bicycle Club. Having finished recording their debut LP I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose in February 2009, the band went straight back into the studio days after they submitted the master for I Had The Blues, and started the initial recordings for this album. Recorded in between touring over the past year and a half, a few early tracks were laid down at The Church and produced by Neill MacColl (guitarist Jamie’s dad), but the rest was recorded in singer, Jack Steadman’s bedroom and produced by Jack himself. Flaws is characterized by a delicate, heart-swelling beauty and lightness of touch throughout. This more stripped down, acoustic sound – though markedly different from the majority of their debut – isn’t new for the band, as almost every single they’ve released since their earliest days has been accompanied by an acoustic b-side.
