Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

The Black Keys-Magic Potion

None October 12th, 2006



Rough. Thick. Haunting. Straight from the gut. Authentic, soulful, American blues rock. If these descriptions appeal to you, then you're gonna love "Magic Potion," the fourth full album from The Black Keys.
It makes me feel good to say that this Ohio-based guitar-and-drums two-piece continues to stand tall as one of the last bastions of righteous, pure, blues-based rock 'n' roll. Boasting a particularly raw, hard sound, the duo is based in the North Mississippi blues tradition and on "Magic Potion," they continue to add the best attributes of classic-rock bands like AC/DC, ZZ Top and Led Zeppelin, with none of the corny anthems, overproduction or medieval English folklore.
Yet miraculously, the Keys have polished their sound further without removing any of the grit and groove that makes them shine. Dan Auerbach's vocals and guitar are richer, and Pat Carney's drum kit speaks more clearly. Every Black Keys album is special. This could be their best
