Black Keys - Magic Potion

You know...sometimes it's crazy how you find out about new bands. Black Keys was a discovery I made while watching a pretty odd new show on HBO called Hung. The show is about a high school teacher who pretty much has nothing...nothing but a large member. So he turns to male prostitution as a way to get money for his kids and putting back together his life. It's a comedy, not a total perv show. Anyway...the Black Keys do the opening track and it's called, "I'll Be Your Man". That isn't on this album, but another great song by them. I picked up a couple albums and I was hooked. I fell in love with this band. They've got this dirty guitar, dirty vocals, garage band feel to them. Similar to maybe a Robert Randolph or some Eels perhaps. They're almost in a genre of their own, as those comparisons aren't even super close. There is probably zero chance you've heard any of this stuff before, so I highly recommend checking out this whole record. The Top 3 I'm sure will catch your ear and then the rest of the album is just icing on the cake. After you fall in love with them too, pick up other albums by them too. OR, of course you can wait until I review them, because hey - that's easier! Enjoy this on hump day!
