My favourite garage rockers The Black Keys return today with their stunning ninth album Lets Rock. In truth, they never left my side with plenty of music to listen to from their back catalogue but how good is it to hear some new stuff after five years away!  The charming toe tapper Go which first stoked the flames of their return in May arguably setting the scene of what was to come on their new album. Interestingly the cool music video that accompanies the song pokes fun at all the rumours that Auerbach and Carney had fallen out with each other, when in fact they just simply suffered from burnout. Back and energised, if The Black Keys don’t riff their way back into my heart, then rock is truly dead my friends. With their focus squarely centred back on guitar and drums on the new album, you will positively enjoy standouts like Get Yourself Together, Lo/Hi and Eagle Bird. But first check out Go here below. Enjoy!

  1. ANIMA has some nice moments, but I don’t think it’s on par with Yorke’s Suspiria solo LP.

    Fire Walk With Me is probably my favorite of the newly released Black Keys tracks. Roy Orbison meets David Lynch, kind of 🙂
