The Arcs – “Outta My Mind”

Dan Auerbach’s one-off 7-inch side project the Arcs has transformed into a full-fledged Black Keys side project with a new full-length on the way. (Maybe he’s turning his attention elsewhere while Patrick Carney recovers from his injury-by-wave?)

Premature Evaluation: Lana Del Rey Ultraviolence

There were plenty of good reasons not to like Born To Die, Lana Del Rey’s first album, and there were plenty of bad reasons, too. I hated the album, for reasons both good and bad. Good reasons: It was thin and underwritten and brittle and overproduced, its album tracks lacking the grand fucked-out majesty of… More »

JEFF The Brotherhood – “Sixpack”

Nashville rippers JEFF The Brotherhood linked up with Dan Auerbach for their new EP, Hypnotic Knights, and having the Black Key behind the boards certainly lends to a little more controlled approach to the usual Brotherhood fury. According to the first track from that release, “Sixpack,” that’s a really good thing, as the ode to… More »

The Black Keys – “Gold On The Ceiling” Video

El Camino’s “Gold On The Ceiling” is the next thrust in the Black Keys’ sorta-surprising-but-then-again-not-really ascension to becoming one of America’s largest rock bands.

Last night’s Report featured Stephen’s analysis of the Grammys (he’s a voting member of NARAS since he won a gramophone last year).

Jessica Lea Mayfield – “Our Hearts Are Wrong”

Ohio singer-songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield is back, following the often desolate, heart-heavy country folk and atmospheric guitar swells/strums of her debut With Blasphemy, So Heartfelt. Again, she has the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach in her corner (he takes a production credit) though now she has an enhanced label presence: JLM’s Tell Me is out 2/8… More »

The Black Keys – “Tighten Up” Video

It’s good (and lucrative) to be the Black Keys: Their mostly self-produced album Brothers came out yesterday, last week they joined Vampire Weekend and Beck & Bat For Lashes on the new Twilight soundtrack, and last Friday they played an open-bar Microsoft KIN secret show where their headshots and things like “The Black Keys Are… More »

Austin City Limits 2009 In Photos

There was dust, rain, then mud. There was Eddie Vedder, sitting in with Kings Of Leon and calling Perry Farrell up onstage with Pearl Jam during a reportedly monstrous, festival headlining two-hour set. There were Brooklynites and Brits, Dave Matthews and Phoenix, The B-52s and Mos Def, John Paul Jones and Karen O. Basically there… More »
