PS is he still doing the wrestling thing?
Trying to listen to it open-minded, I like it. As a Smashing Pumpkins song, ehh. I like Billy Corgan’s sweater in that pic.
Y’all talk about Steve Albini like he’s your uncle’s friend’s cousin.
I agree. I loved 12 Reasons to Die (plus the vinyl is clear and “blood-spattered”). But Return to the 36 Chambers isn’t even in your top 3?! That is bold.
I thought we stopped giving a shit what Patrick Carney says? Every time he’s in the news the Black Keys’ music is “devalued.”
same here. just those six piano hits even. but nothing more than when I recognized that secret track as “Lovely Day,” like bizarro James Franco trapped in a space canyon.
Let’s hope Andre’s acting career hasn’t peaked already….
undun is definitely more cohesive, and had more actual verses. But the arrangements on this new one are some of the best stuff they’ve ever done. And “Tomorrow?” I love it.
Why do people feel the need to defend Carney? Every comment I’ve ever heard from him is shit-talking or just something negative. He’s not a great drummer (I’d say the Black Keys’ talent is 90% Auerbach). Why do people even like this guy?
I think he was going for something a little edgier
