White Stripes made people take notice with an instrumentation that consisted only of an electric guitar and drums. There’s another group that is doing the same with a recent CD called Magic Potion (Nonesuch). They are Black Keys. It’s a bluesy sound with riffing guitar and blue note rock vocals. They remind me of the band Free a little, in that there’s a blues underpinning to everything they do. The tunes are well paced and the CD is quite enjoyable.
I must rush away. It's time we ship a bass to Norway.
