Everything Goes Black

Now that we’re back from our summer vacations and we’re trying to re-adapt to the daily grind, there’s nothing better than a couple of strong rocking tracks to help us get back on our feet - sort of like a double dose of black coffee to reawaken the system. The first one is "Next Girl" from The Black Keys’ recent "Brothers" LP, a track that gets my vote for Summer Anthem 2010 (the video certainly helps a lot), and the second one is "Old Fangs" by Black Mountain, a first taste from the forthcoming, highly anticipated, "Wilderness Heart" LP (I wonder if this is their answer to Them Crooked Vultures’ "New Fang"):

The Black Keys - Next Girl

Black Mountain - Old Fangs

Did I mention that Black Mountain will be hitting the road this fall along with fellow psych rockers The Black Angels who release their new album "Phosphene Dream" on the same date (September 13 or 14 depending on your location)? Everything goes black…here’s a teaser for The Black Angels LP and here are the dates and tickets for The Dropout Boogie Tour (unfortunately there are no dates in Europe for this deliciously black combination except for one show in London...hmmm):

The Black Angels - Bad Vibrations
