At Least I Died Doing What I Love

New Music

Dan Auerbach – Keep It Hid – Fair warning, there will be quite a bit of Dan Auerbach in these music posts the next couple of weeks.  I’m going to his concert when he comes to Chicago, so I’ll have to treat you all to a review.  Anyway, getting this album took some doing.  I ordered this online in order to take advantage of a birthday coupon before it expired.  Then the delivery took a whopping two weeks, which delayed me getting my hands on the album until well after the release date.  It was a tense couple of days waiting for it to come, but finally, last night, I got my hands on it.  Needless to say, I haven’t had too much of a chance to listen to the entire album yet, but “Trouble Weighs a Ton” is a pretty great openeing song (see the videos below).
