Soul Sundays: Dan Auerbach
This week we have a song by Dan Auerbach of Black Keys fame. If you haven’t listened to the Black Keys, I’d recommended removing the rock you’re living under and go listen to some of their albums. The Black Keys, which consist of Auerbach and partner Patrick Carney, are one of the preeminent blues-rock bands on the scene today. They have the unique talent of not sounding like two white guys from Akron, Ohio (which they are) and at the same time, dropping some of the funkiest, timeless tunes imaginable. Auerbach’s only solo project, Keep it Hid is no different. This tune, “Real Desire” is my favorite on the album. It comes packaged with a swanky riff, background vocals, bittersweet plot of heartache, and the usual healthy serving of soul any Black Keys product oozes. Enjoy!
“Because you want to set the world on fire…”
