The Black Keys

I've been really digging Black Keys' sixth album, Brothers. I'll admit that I was getting them confused with another clap-your-hands indie band and am pleasantly surprised to find they are quite the opposite, with an at times psychedelic, at times gritty, blues/rock sound. Also a nice touch of indie in there as well.

Listen to Brothers on NPR's 'First Listen'

If you like Black Keys, check out Blues and Lasers, out of Burlington, Vt. They are just getting their start and open for Grace Potter and the Nocturnals in Portland, Maine, later this month. Like GP&N, Blues and Lasers revisits early '60s psychedelic/blues.
