    THE BLACK KEYS LIVE FROM BERLIN


     

     

    They’re an unstoppable Guitar slinging machine at this stage, but The Black Key’s rise to popularity has been a gradual one. ‘Turn Blue’ their eighth album arrived in May, and it signalled that their career is still in an upward trajectory. Here The Black Keys live at Postbahnhof (Berlin) with Dan on The Alternative.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: BOB MOULD, SLEEP THIEVES, & THE NORTHERN DRONES

     



    He's been in seminal acts like Husker Du and Sugar, and his solo career has brought us some special music too. Bob Mould's latest album 'Beauty & Ruin' may just be his best. Considering what he has released over the years, that's quite something.

    There's always a danger that any band can get it wrong in their second album, especially when their debut was so good. Should we have ever heals doubts about Sleep Thieves? Certainly not! 'You Want The Night' is a brilliant collage of sounds; one which will serve them well in 2014 and beyond. There's no doubt that this is a contender for Irish album of the year.

    The Northern Drones have been knocking out albums at a rate that is hard to keep up with. Do they know something we don't know? Is the apocalypse around the corner? On the menu is a wall of guitar noise drenched in psychedelic. 'Psychic Waves' may not win them an Oscar, but it's an album that you should certainly take note of, and enjoy.

    BURIED TREASURE - 'KINGDOM OF GHOSTS' BY HUMANZI

     

    The Dublin band had relocated to Berlin to record this album. Their debut album ‘Tremors’ had received a lot of attention, but they’d parted company with their Record label. ‘Kingdom Of Ghosts’ is the sound of a band with a point to prove. To say that they succeeded in proving that point would be an understatement!
