Weight of Love
The Black Keys are a great rock bank.
They don’t fight the time they live in – they embrace it.
This song screams old Pink Floyd with nodes of David Gilmour jam over a quiet background of disillusioned isolation. BUT – Don’t sue them please!
This is artistic influence people.
This is taking the clay of what was before and shaping it for enjoyment right now.
This song has weight – it has mass with a gravitational pull that draws you in – you orbit in free fall while your brain gets a gentle waterfall of clarity – you know —- that is what great music is supposed to do —-if it does not do that – it is not great music.
These guys are the Rolling Stones and U2 of today.
Yes – damn it – I said it —- don’t waste your time paying $478 from a ticket broker to see if Keith Richards can still stand up for a two hour show.
Go see The Black Keys
Go see a band that is playing music they just wrote – go support wild “fresh caught” music.
Cooked right in front of you.
I went to the band website and there is a button you click to play this song (along with others)– not 12 seconds of the song – but this entire song. That is embracing the time we live in.
Simple and great.
