Paint it Black

I don't care how widely known it is that the album Brothers by The Black Keys is revolutionary and scene-changing in the contemporary blues-rock world, but it is - and that's something should be pointed out over and over again. This song, "The Only One", truly rocks my socks - with its slow groove, muffled flick of the bluesy guitar, shaker beat and organ riffs; it really possesses almost every component and feeling I love in a song. The lazy layers of soprano and hazy, heated feel are exactly what a stroll at sundown feels like in the muggy summer city. This song deserves a strut, a smile and an immediate repeat. Enjoy.
