Jam of the Week: The Black Keys


Artist: The Black Keys

Album: Magic Potion

Genre: Blues Rock (Modern)

Date: 2006

Sound: Loud ass mix of Garage Rock and North Mississippi Blues

Cool Stuff: Before they were all popular and stuff, The Black Keys were a couple of dudes from Ohio just rocking out some Blues tunes in their basement. Then their albums became more intricate, as did their production techniques. Soon enough, they had a sound friendly enough for the radio waves and the arenas of the world. I say well done boys, but I won’t forget where you came from. Here’s my favorite Keys album. It’s all Blues, but done so damn loud, you can’t help but crank the volume up.

  1. Looking forward to the band’s new release this year

    • They’re a machine on the road and in the studio. I think recording was supposed to have wrapped up in March.
