Lonely Boy

Oct 31, 2011 by


This is my favorite find of the last week.  I had just heard the song and, as usual upon first listening, had a lengthy discussion, in my head, regarding the song, the band, the potential of the yet to be released album, the new direction they seem to be taking, what I was going to eat for lunch (my mind wanders during long discussions, It’s why I like punk music – short songs), and how much fun it would be to be in the room with the ‘Keys and Danger Mouse when they record an album.  I was still thinking about it as I sat down at my computer to get some work done, when I received an email from Matt, no subject, no message, just a link to this video.

The song is great:  it’s quick and bouncy, thanks to the slap happy organ, and with just the right amount of reverb to make you think “surf music” without necessarily sounding like “surf music”.  All, of course, built around a signature Black Keys riff.  So, clearly, I already like the song, but this video is EPIC.  I can’t tell you how happy it made me to see a black man dance like me.  I even have the same shirt.

As with any blog post about music, the best stuff is often found in the comments; this is no exception.  Make sure to check them out.

My favorite comment:
