Posted in Media, Music News, News, Video with tags , , , , , on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

The Black Keys have released their official music video for the new single “Gold on the Ceiling” off of El Camino. It is a very catchy song and the video features the two rockers from Akron, Ohio performing in the studio, on stage and preparing for the stage. The video seems to put a little smile on your face as you watch the amount of effort and the amount of fun the two are having. If you haven’t checked out the video yet, go ahead and if you haven’t heard the song yet, it is a must play.

Holy shit. As you all know I love Hip-Hop, but I also love The Black Keys. There is something about their music that is so dynamic, that it pulls me right in. Their heavy Blues riffs, and great lyrics made me fall in love with their music. When I headed over to 2DopeBoyz today, I found out that the Black Keys are going to be putting out an album with a bunch of Hip-Hop guest appearances. On the album you will find: Mos Def, RZA, Jim Jones, Q-Tip, Raekwon, Pharoahe Monch & more. The album will be dropping on November 27th, or Black Friday. The project will be called Black Roc, and Dame Dash will have a pretty big part in this album being released.

Good Lord, this album sounds like it’s going to be incredible. The first single “Hoochie Coo” dropped today, and it features Mos Def & Jim Jones. I can assure you that I already like the Black Keys infused beats that I am hearing on this track. I think this album is going to be a force to be reckoned with.

Dan Auerbach has no reason to be “Heartbroken, In Disrepair”

With “Heartbroken, In Disrepair”, Dan Auerbach‘s got the grooviest tune I’m hearing so far this year on 89.3 The Current; it’s got a great combination of the soulful bluesy reverb-heavy guitar work that we heard all over Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s Grammy-winning Raising Sand and some magical classic American sounding textures that I don’t think the guy has ever even touched with his main band (The Black Keys) yet. Based on what friends who saw him at First Avenue earlier in the year informed me, the live setting is the place to hear what he can really do with pipes and picking fingers, so I’m very intrigued to hear him play someday. However, I understand there are a lot of people that seem to love this guy already at this young point in his career, so I’m still not sure why he’s still so down in the dumps.. Either way, I dig what his achey heart makes..

These are breaks. Break it up BREAK it up BREAK IT UP!

Hello again boys and girls, it’s that time of the month again (no…not that time) for a nice little playlist to get you through these treacherous winter months here in the midwest. There’s no real flow to this thing, so it’s not a playlist as much as it is just tracks together in one spot that I’ve had on repeat lately. I suggest them all, of course, so if you’re bored or just looking for some new material to get into give these a peek. Hope you all enjoy! xoxo Erik
