The Black Keys Turn Blue

 
The Black Keys seem to be getting better with every album. Following the highly successful 2011’s “ El Camino ” their eighth album feels loose , sort of irresistible and more improvised, consisting of songs that you can’t help but sing along to . The undeniable upbeat drive of their playing and the bittersweet content of their songs are a combination able to turn heartbreak into a totally new experience and function therapeutically.

Tracks immediately accessible that have become instant favourites on the first listen are the single “ Fever ” which unquestionably pleases their numerous fans , “ Turn Blue ” which is beautifully bluesy and the incredible opening track “ Weight Of Love ” that is truly and genuinely thrilling and features an epic guitar solo.

Dan Auerbach’s guitar playing is nothing short but exceptional and takes center stage, leaving you astounded. It looks like he has found what it takes to make the songs as good as they can possibly be. As for Patrick Carney’s drumming , it is powerful and appealing as always but without overwhelming the songs. As it has well been written , “ Turn Blue ” is a wonderful album that is meant to be heard in its entirety with your full attention. The music just flows from the listener’s ears to the brain and into the heart and often works as a healing force. Surprisingly enough the album seems to have stepped right out of the 70’s and this is something The Black Keys should be proud of.

With “ TURN BLUE ” The Black Keys exhibit even more musical growth and maturity but at the same time they leave room to grow and develop their supreme talents. There is no doubt that they have all the right elements and maintain a high level of quality in their work but what is even more important and admirable is the fact that they prove what they already know in their hearts … “ Taking risks and sticking to what you love often works ” !!!

Discover the irresistibly catchy album with the melancholic title “ Turn Blue ” and let a special band blow you away !!!

Kasabian’s 48:13 ( Not giving into convention )

KASABIAN  –  48:13kasabian_mlh02101_website_image_sgjv_standard

Ready to headline Glastonbury this summer, Kasabian have a lot to prove in 2014. 48:13 is the fifth eagerly awaited studio album by the English rock band from Leicester. The album, produced by the band’s guitarist Sergio Pizzorno is named after its total running time. Kasabian have forged ahead … created their own template and though widely discussed could it just be their masterpiece ? Their latest album embraces their electro-funk roots and could be described as their most dance-influenced outing to date ( ‘Explodes’and ‘Stevie’ are a tangible proof ). An LP consistently strong on grooves , sincere , innovative without any doubt , daring and bursting with energy.

 
Kasabian are one of those bands that split opinion and I guess that always makes a band really interesting. Their inventive songwriting skills cannot be questioned and as a matter of fact , this time they prove to be a far more inventive group than expected. Their music takes some daring journeys that seem to surprise and then hypnotise their fans. Much of the heavy synth and the neo-psychedelia remains but finely tuned and enriched with more electro-rock elements that demonstrate the confidence of a band who aren’t interested in giving into convention.

 
They are daring and never do the obvious thing. Some might say they are an underrated force who never rest on their laurels. Always ready to take risks they avoid being led into a stale territory. Lets see where this new venture takes them 😉
