Pick of the Week: Gold on the Ceiling

Posted: December 14th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Blog | Tags: ,

 

The Black Keys are back with a vengeance.  This fall they’ve been playing the Late Night TV circuit with appearances on the Colbert Report, David Letterman, and SNL.  They recently announced an upcoming arena tour with The Arctic Monkeys.  And this week they dropped their new, very cleverly marketed album, El Camino.  It’s 3 AM on the week before finals so I don’t have all that much to say except that the album is good.  Its less bluesy than anything that has come before and it is surprisingly, refreshingly goofy.  Among the goofier and catchier tracks on the album, Gold on the Ceiling has the absurd refrain:  “They wanna get my gold on the ceiling.”  It may not make much sense but in an empty common room at 3 am in the morning it is endlessly amusing.  El Camino is now available on iTunes (but not Spotify!) and tickets for the Black Keys’ arena tour go on sale to the public this Friday, December 9th.  Get on it folks!

    Nice pick! Seems like every time these guys release an album I’m waiting for it to sound like puke. However, they’re as consistently good as they come.
