The Black Keys didn’t and arent “reinventing blues music”. I’m sorry. I have all their albums and I like them but I’m more than aware they get kudos more cos they white than any “new” sound they provide.
So, everyone should go check out A Tribe Called Red. You can download their album for free here, but if you like them, consider buying their single, or just donating. They’re a DJ crew from Ottawa, they’re all First Nations/Native American and they really fucking rule. Electric PowWow Drum is amazing, and it isn’t on the album, but NDNs From All Directions can be found on their soundcloud page and is equally kick ass. Seriously, if you like club/electronica/synth music with amazing beats, but are kind of bored with the standard stuff out there, give them a try.
