The Black Keys: Heavy Soul

By Jack Loftus on at

Sunday is my day here at Gizmodo UK. Has been for some time. The day and this shift have nestled nice and snug into my life groove. Unfortunately, it's also the day I'm most apt to be a bit, ah, groggy.

Why isn't really important. I'm a man with vices and I long ago succumbed to them. But when Sunday comes along I have responsibilities, and I need to sharped up quick so that I can at least fake my way through the first part of the day without anyone noticing.

To do that I usually just push play on my Black Keys Pandora station and chill the eff out. What's playing now? "Heavy Soul" is, actually, and thanks for asking. The track is off one of their older albums, The Big Come Up, but they have plenty of other tunes that you should check out tonight if crunchy bluesy things are to your liking.

Blue rock. Alternative blue rock. Garage. Whatever you want to call it is fine by me. Mix in a little Stevie Ray Vaughn "Rude Mood" or Stevie Wonder waxing on about Superstition and I'm back in tip-top shape by lunchtime. [iTunes]
