The Black Keys

I was recently convicted by a friend for my “apparently unceasing love for The Black Keys.” Roger that. Makes me smile every time to think how much a compliment I consider her straightforward statement of fact to be.

Stereogum points out that the duo cut and put out a cover of the Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band (geek on frontman Don Van Vliet here) song I’m Glad.

The mp3 is downloadable on their MySpace (or at Stereogum) until Friday.

I hesitate to be so crude, but this is the sort of song you put on and ignore for a couple of minutes, only to find it has surreptitiously grabbed you by the balls and you realize you may have been holding your breath.

In other good news, if you live in the Cleveland, there’s a surprise first-come-fist-served Black Keys show on Wednesday. Check the info here.
