The Black Keys are an unlikely success story, but their music is finally reaching a larger audience. Watch the CBS Sunday Morning interview where Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney visit their old high school, talk to their parents, and discuss their stardom, which was a decade in the making.
Check out the band’s “Gold on the Ceiling” video below:
After spending Saturday night celebrating Record Store Day, we return tonight on WTTS Indy Underground to our bread and butter: original songs from original artists. You don’t get any more original than Jack White, who has continued to tease us with a slow leak of Blunderbuss before the (thankful) unveiling tomorrow. Now that we’ve had a month to digest The Shins latest, we’ll pull out the best parts of Port of Morrow (after the first single “Simple Song”, of course). And another band to see high expectations come with just a 4 song EP has released a debut full-length. We’ll see how Alabama Shakes measure up.
This week on WTTS New Music Monday, we’ll recap some of the new releases previewed in previous weeks. With so many artists expanding their catalogs in the early stages of 2012, we’ve hardly been able to keep up with the summer schedule.
Saturday, April 21st was a day to show appreciation for the music that moves us. In honor of Album Side Saturday on WTTS and National Record Store Day, Indy Underground explored cover songs. Artists show their appreciate for the songs that inspire them by putting their own spin on them. We show our appreciation for these musicians by sharing their work with you.
