Watch The Black Keys Play “Little Black Submarines” On Austin City Limits (Stereogum Premiere)
When The Black Keys filmed their Austin City Limits episode last November, they mostly stuck to songs from their 2014 record Turn Blue. But to close out the episode, they performed “Little Black Submarines,” one of the highlights from their 2011 breakout record El Camino. After picking his way through an extended intro, Dan Auerbach launches into the song, keeping it in the slower, acoustic range until it seems like the duo just aren’t going to kick into the next level for this performance. But when the lights dim, it’s just so Auerbach can switch guitars to do the bluesy breakdown justice. Watch the exclusive clip below.
The Black Keys episode of ACL airs this Saturday, 1/31 on PBS.
