THE BLACK KEYS Play Some Steamy Delta Blues Live On American TV

16 May 2021

Last Friday blues-rock tandem THE BLACK KEYS dropped Delta Kream.
A steamy and sweaty collection honoring their heroes of the Mississippi
Hill Country Blues
.

The same day, night actually, the Keys and two amigos played live, from
an unknown place, two pieces for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
Pretty cool performances.

Feel the sweltering vibe here…

THE BLACK KEYS Honor Their Blues Idols – Covers Album ‘DELTA KREAM’ Out Now

14 May 2021

The famous blues-rock tandem THE BLACK KEYS went back to the roots that inspired
and fueled their successful career. Today their album of covers of golden blues oldies, titled DELTA KREAM arrived. A collection honoring the heroes of the Mississippi Hill Country Blues.

NME says:“The duo have never courted celebrity, and here they delve deeper than ever before into the swampy roots of their genre’s forefathers… This record reinforces a willing and gradual retreat from the rock juggernaut space The Black Keys once occupied. The moody jams bubble with authenticity in a deeply satisfying trip back in time. While this record is unlikely to bring the band or the cultural touchstones they cover back to the top, it’s a soul-searching move that satisfies their own fandom while showing they’ll never compromise.”
Read the full interview here. Score: 3/5.

– CRAWLIN’ KING SNAKE –

– DO THE ROMP
