Ohio Music Friday

My brother is coming into town tonight, and the two of us are heading out to see Dan Auerbach (of the Black Keys) here in Chicago at Metro.  It’s really cool of him to drive all the way out here, and I’m excited to spend a weekend with him.  Oh, and the concert is going to be awesome too.  Full report sometime next week. Of course Auerbach (and the Black Keys) hail from Akron, OH and make up the first leg of the Ohio fun this Friday.

New Music

Heartless Bastards – All This Time – After the Cincinnati, OH band made an appearance on one of E-6’s random 10 music lists, I checked out a couple of their songs in various places, and I really liked the title track of this one.  I debated buying their newest album, but decided on this one.  So far I like it quite a bit.

Random Ten Songs

The Offspring – Let’s Hear It For Rock Bottom
Mudvayne – Trapped In the Wake Of a Dream
Mars Volta – Cicatriz ESP
Counting Crows – Mercury
Flaming Lips – Vein of Stars
Meat Puppets – Magic Toy Missing
Yo Yo Ma – Suite #3, Courante (J. S. Bach)
Queens of the Stone Age – Song For the Deaf
Led Zeppelin – In My Time of Dying
Yo Yo Ma – Suite #3, Allemande (J. S. Bach)

Blah, that’s a pretty uninspired random 10. Led Zeppelin gets a gold star for best song here.

Two Videos – These are from bands whose concerts I have attended.

Incubus – A Certain Shade Of Green (first concert)

Tool – Sober (best concert)

    I wasn’t crazy about the new HB album at first–thought it too mellow. It’s growing on me. And the title track is a gem.

    Enjoy the gig with your bro.

    • The Black Keys covered “Have Love Will Travel” on ‘Thickfreakness’. Good song.

      I remember you said something about the mellowness of the HB album, that’s part of why I went with the older stuff. I like the stuff I’ve heard from the new album though (“Mountain” and “Out to Sea”)
