I teamed up with The Retro for a little review of El Camino from The Black Keys. Check out their blog here for the full review. Here's a little snippet.
Folk, soul or rock and roll- just give me good music and I’m happy...
I love the retro sound of The Black Keys, a band that gives the perfect combo of blues and rock. Every summer, especially when coursework starts building up, I head right back to my happy place- a playlist filled with Black Keys tunage. El Camino is one of my favourite albums of theirs and I say ‘one of’ because I physically can NOT choose between this, Brothers and Thickfreakness.
I've picked out my fave 5 songs but check out The Retro blog for the track-by-track reviews.
DEAD AND GONE
Psychedelic, soulful and strong- Very “70’s revival”. Keep the love alive!
GOLD ON THE CEILING
Retro groove with a touch of synth and a memorable riff.
Just listen to those energetic blues vibes!
RUN RIGHT BACK
Dirty guitar and HOT vocals.
Auerbach’s effortlessly rough yet dreamy vocals are stunning in this song. Mind Eraser provides a perfectly simple ending to the whole album.
Overall, the El Camino is just filled unreal energy and is the perfect soundtrack to your summer! (You might as well just throw all the albums all in there…)
