Playing On Repeat: The Black Keys Get Deep on Turn Blue

 “Every now and then I see your face from way back when and I explode, Friends no longer egg me on, they bullshit serenade me like it’s gold, how then we’re told. I’m praying for some laughter, maybe joy forever after ’til I die, I’m hungry for a change, I got my fill of other’s […]

Step To This: High Ball Stepper

Well, thank you sir. Thank you for not disappointing. Thank you for changing things up, but still retaining that you-ness that is so… you. High Ball Stepper starts off with a high pitched chorus, followed by a short piano interlude. Then comes the bass, signature Jack White staccato guitar and drum rhythm. I dare you […]

Playing On Repeat: Heavy English Will Restore Your Faith

Playing On Repeat: Black Lips

“My eyes start to bleeding, from the southern smoke.  And ain’t nobody leaving, cause the shards will split your throat…” -Black Lips, Boys In The Wood This one’s a slow burner.  It brings to mind a swampy hot summer night swilling some brown liquid with some bad influence-types.  A slow southern drawl.

Playing On Repeat: Sleigh Bells

“Are you telling lies with you pretty eyes, You’re in trouble yeah, you don’t get me twice” -Sleigh Bells, You Don’t Get Me Twice I love a good kiss-off song.  And this one may be responsible for damaging my eardrums this past week….  A danceable beat, fuzzy guitar reminiscent of Lenny Kravitz’s version of “American […]

Playing On Repeat: Heavy English

“Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow.  And I play it on repeat. ‘Til I fall asleep.  Spilling drinks on my settee.” -Arctic Monkeys, Do I Wanna Know?
