Stepping into the shoes of the Nutshell’s music mama, I feel a bit intimidated to evaluate a good jam as well as Miz Jess Huddleston can. That being said, I still feel a tug on my heart strings with the powerful riff of a guitar. So I wanted to share with you(& with my fellow nuts) a song that is haunting, painful at times but most of all, beautiful.
The Black Keys have been on my playlist since September 2009 and I think it’s safe to say that this year, the musical duo have crept up and taken over the playlists of millions. I know that almost all of the nuts will be attending their performance at Bluesfest this year, along with many more of mi amigos. There’s just something about Auerbach’s honest vocals, true and tried, that keep us coming back for more. The success of their latest album, “Brothers”, is a testament to their soaring popularity in 2010/2011. Although I am fully on board the “Brothers” band wagon ( because, let’s face it. . . it’s awesome), here is a track from their former album, “Attack & Release”, that instantly attacked me, shook me and released my love for this timeless band.
All You Ever Wanted by The Black Keys . . Enjoy!
