Album Review: The Black Keys – Turn Blue

Generally when one is talking about the sound of The Black Keys, you usually have to specify which album era you’re talking about. The band has been churning out albums since 2002 and their sound has changed drastically since 2006’s Magic Potion. Their first few albums had a much more raw feel to them than their more recent stuff. When they started out they were very much a in-your-face, fuzz blues, garage, hard rock kind of band and it was powerfully beautiful. Attack & Release had a much more psychedelic kind of chill out feel to it that made you want to get in your car and drive across the country with the windows down. Brothers was an album that took them in a more straight up rock feeling and El Camino got even more upbeat with rock songs that made you want to get up and dance (I dare you to try and listen to “Lonely Boy” without dancing). Turn Blue might be the first album by them in which everything sounds like it’s been done before. But this is actually what makes it an amazing album.

Mac DeMarco Interview: The Sequel

Did you see our baby food-filled interview with Mac DeMarco? Whether you did or not, you didn’t get the full story. Here are some segments from the crazy Q & A session with our favorite Canadian that didn’t quite make the cut.

Who least inspires your music?
Least inspires? Hmm. I don’t know. The Police.

Why do they sell french fries at Taco Bell in Canada?
Because most Taco Bells are Taco Bell/KFC…KFC does fries so it comes from KFC. I think it’s a great joint thing there.

Where in Canada has the best poutine?
Montreal…but poutine is never that good anyway.

Where is the missing Malaysian airplane?
I think that airplane is some Amelia Earhart shit, you know? I don’t think we’ll ever know. But uh, I don’t know. Maybe they…you know what? My bandmates are pretty convinced it’s aliens. Like an alien ship came down and sucked up the airplane. So, I’m gonna put my money over there for that.
