These guys reached the top of their rock career with this song, after this track on that album their music became something that was not rock anymore.
The Black Keys, the perfect band at a perfect time for rock. A power duo with a mad drummer and a vintage guitars freak. Sounds like The White Stripes, right? but here the drummer (Patrick Carney) has more groove and the guitar player (Dan Auerbach) is not as mad as Willy White (A.K.A Jack White). Let’s say that this band is more balanced.
Their style is astonishing, their recording techniques before El Camino were bizarrely amazing (reaching a point to record the guitar from a cigarette mini amp and a ribbon mic), song’s lyrics synced with people of the same era but the music mixing different genres and eras of rock.
If you are looking for some interesting track I’ll recommend you:
1. Stack Shot Billy - Drums groove is beautiful
2. I Got Mine - Explosive guitar and real feel of the power duo they are
3. She Said, She Said - Great Beatles cover
4. Have Mercy on Me - Just becuase I love it
5. Lonely Boy - Famous one but maybe you didn’t know the name

About the curator - Rodrigo Medrano
At a very early age, music had an incredible impact on Rodrigo’s life. He was never able to listen to lullaby songs; instead he was served Guns n’ Roses and Aerosmith for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
At the age of 12, he became a melomaniac, collecting albums, EP’s, recording sessions, and researching every kind of genre. All this helped him to get his first job at a recording studio where he realized his life would forever revolve around sound and music.
Working on cruise ships as First Audio Technician allowed him to let loose his passion and expand his knowledge on psychoacoustics, eventually promoted up to being in charge of sound for the hit broadway shows: Rock of Ages and Burn The Floor.
His music library will never stop growing as his melomania will get worse and worse.
