Dan Auerbach: Waiting On A Song

The Black Keys front man, Dan Auerbach is back with his second solo release in eight years, Waiting On A Song. It’s billed as his love letter to Nashville where he now resides, and the album certainly plays that way. With more resources and plenty of high profile help from John Prine, Duane Eddy, Bobby Wood, and others, Auerbach hits a home run with this album. It’s a departure from the grit so prevalent on Black Keys albums, making it fresh, fun, and a pleasant surprise for fans of the band. ...

After experimenting with different influences on their last two albums, Cage the Elephant returns to a more bluesy, classic sound on their fourth and latest effort, Tell Me I’m Pretty. In an interview with The Aquarian Weekly, lead singer Matt Schultz calls the album “not minimalistic, but classic.” It’s a pretty succinct way to describe the no-frills, blues approach that makes Tell Me I’m Pretty reminiscent of the band’s explosive self-titled debut album back in 2008.

Their fifth studio album Hold My Home is another attempt to find a solid footing, but with mixed results.

Hold My Home begins with the first single “All This Could Be Yours,” which features Nathan Willett’s signature throaty vocals, but it’s ...
