Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys got bored, so he made more music

You don't have to love The Black Keys. I don't.
You don't really even have to like them, but you'd probably be wrong about that. They're really good, and that should be acknowledged, even if you aren't a huge fan.
And perhaps the one undeniable fact about The Black Keys is that Dan Auerbach is an ultra-talented musician.
Auerbach released a really, really good solo album in 2009 called Keep it Hid. It's more bluesy and more personal than any of the music that The Black Keys make, and a lot less commercially appealing. A lot of it is just plain sad. "Trouble Weighs a Ton," above, is an example.
Early this year, the second half of The Black Keys, drummer Patrick Carney, suffered an arm injury that forced the band to cancel their tour.
So what do you do when you're the healthy half of a very active, very popular, very good rock band?

You make more music, dummy.

Dan Auerbach doesn't need telling. He's made an album under the name The Arcs, and it's coming out in September. The single, "Stay in my Corner," is above. Reports suggest that the album will have lots of collaborations, which is exciting.
This sounds pretty much like textbook Black Keys, so that's good.
Get well soon, Mr. Carney, but, in the meantime, Auerbach's got the Black Keys sound covered, no problem.

How To Earn Cryptocurrency Without Investment: Get Paid $1,000+ Per Week With This Easy Method
Do you want to earn cryptocurrency without investment? You can do that! All you need is a computer and an internet connection. This article will introduce you some ways to earn cryptocurrency for free. Easy Ways to Earn Cryptocurrency Before we get into the details, here is a description of some of the most common ways to earn cryptocurrency, in my opinion. 1. Paysafe Paysafe is a popular bitcoin platform with a great reputation and growing market cap. The system allows users to deposit or withdraw funds into their Bitcoin account to receive the equivalent in cryptocurrency. It does not require a registration process or any verification. In fact, there are no account numbers. You just deposit cash into your account and get paid back in cryptocurrency. For example, if you deposit $100 at least 7 days before you want to receive the money in your bank account, you can do that as well. All you need to do is follow the instructions, receive the crypto on your mobile or computer, and receive it in cash without any charge. Make Money with Bitcoin There are various websites which offer lucrative Bitcoin rewards and in some cases, a small monthly payment. I write this for the beginners, because you need a way to earn money without the need to invest in Bitcoin, as you can read more about that here. There are some websites which pay you for your writings, for example, writing about Bitcoin will get you a monthly payout of approximately $100 for the next month. You can do the same thing with making money on a single word for example, and that is what I did. This article talks about that and some other ways to earn cryptocurrency free by writing for a website. And for the people who are afraid to write, all you need is a Google account. Get Paid in Bitcoin Daily Cryptocurrency is like Bitcoin, which is an alternative payment network which uses a peer-to-peer network to transfer cryptocurrencies and other digital currencies. Many people use this method to get paid. Do you want to get paid in Bitcoin? Sign up for Abra. Don't worry, it's secure, so you don't have to put your personal information. The Digital Asset Exchange offers you a daily payout of $250. If you buy or sell digital assets, you will get paid and the returns are variable and are dependent on market trends. But there is one thing to consider. The average payout is about $20-$30. You can try to set your expectations lower, which will be to your benefit. You can earn more by selling and buying digital assets than by selling and buying Bitcoin. Get a Hashflare Mining Contract Go to https://hashflare.com. Take the two steps below. 1.

Lisa!!!
Holy crap, she is just great!!! Lisa is a Japanese music artist and by far the best I have heard. Her music is so catchy and it has a happy tune to it. So her genes are pop, rock, and anison. If you don't speak Japanese still listen to her she is amazing. I love this picture for some weird reason she reminds me oh Nonnon from Kill la Kill. Speaking of kill la kill that reminds me she did do songs for anime.πŸ˜ƒ Soo...what shows did she do you ask?? Fate/Zero, Sword art Online, Day Break Illusion, Nisekoi, and The Irregular at Magic High school. In my opinion her best album is land space. Why, you ask? Because her songs in "Land space" are all catchy fun and the lyrics really move to the beats in the song!!!🎡 Man I want to see her concert so bad. Who will give me money to go see her!?!? Rising hope from the irregular at Magic high school. She did an amazing job on this music Video and the song. The way she sang it really brings out the meaning of the show😍 Lisa being only 28 does a great job! I give a huge thumbs up to her!!😊 The only reason I found out about her is when my crazy friend told me who did the songs for sword art online. He said she was the best and I had to check her out. So I did and I came to loving her. Lxixsxa.com is her website it won't let me get the link.😒 So any way that's it. She's awesome. If you guys like her then make sure to tell me in the comments or fell free to message me. I'll defiantly be making some more on bands I listen to.(not just Japanese artist) But yeah if you ever go to or have been to one of Lisa's concerts make a card with a picture of the concert and be sure to tag me in it.😊 Alright Bye and keep on Rocking it!!!😍 You get music reference? No, ok. I thought it was funny.😒
Top 10 Alternative Albums Of 2015
2015 was a huge year for Alternative music. We had comebacks, break-ups and killer releases. Music is the missing link between us and the rest of the world. It expresses our deepest fears, joys and triumphs. 2015 was the year of great comebacks, massive hooks and surprise collaborations. Alternative music is always surprising and brilliant. Here are my picks for the top 10 Alternative Albums of 2015. 10. Let It Reign - Carl Barat and The Jackals One of the most underrated indie releases of this year, Let It Reign is a stomper from start to finish. Showcasing the anger and madness Barat became famous for, while also coming off as an extremely nuanced look back at wilder days, this album is perfect for anyone going through the trenches. I took a lot of comfort in these songs, because it was like someone was singing my sorrow back to me. This album is ideal for front to back listening. No skips needed. Even Carl Barat himself liked my sentiments on this record. YES for the ReTweet! (Scroll right to see!) Essential Listens: "March of the Idle", "A Storm Is Coming", "Victory Gin" 9. Badlands - Halsey If you put Sia, Lorde and Debby Harry into a blender, out comes Halsey. Badass, unique and fresh, her style and honesty injected pop and alternative with some much needed perspective. I remember listening to the single "New Americana" while I lived in Brooklyn, New York this summer. I'll never forget the memories associated with it. That's how you know a song or album is good. You can remember the exact time you listened to those tracks, and they transport you to that place. Her debut was one of the most pleasant surprises of the year. We've got a lot to look forward to. Essential Listens: "New Americana", "Ghost", " 8. Wolf Alice - My Love Is Cool Teenage reckless abandon is alive and well with Wolf Alice's "My Love Is Cool". Marketed and revered as grunge's next incarnation. After years of relentless touring without a full-length release there was a lot of anticipation leading up to the full length release. We were not disappointed. Unapologetic and taylor made for the festival circuit, Wolf Alice, is yet another UK indie act with the potential to take over the world. Essential Listens: "Lisbon", "Soapy Water" 7. Sound & Color -Alabama Shakes No voice rocked the world in 2105 like Brittany Howard's. Sometimes when you hear something so profound and unique, it just changes things. We felt the pain, joy and madness of this album through each note she sang. It doesn't hurt that this band is solid as a rock live, and even sounds better than the records. Alabama Shakes were relatively unknown prior to this year's release, and hopefully their star will keep rising, so we can get a little bit more of that home grown, soul-rock and roll. Essential Listens: "Future People", "Don't Want To Fight", "Sound & Color" 6. Blur - The Magic Whip 2015 was really the year that Britrock came back. I mean four British bands made this list, and for good reason. Blur dropped off the map after a festival cancellation in 2013, but came back with magic to spare with 2015's "The Magic Whip". More fun and functional than most albums of this year, the album was a great comeback for one of Britain's most revered bands. Now, if only Oasis could give us an album like this. We'd be set. Essential Listens: "I Broadcast", "Ghost Ship", "Go Out" 5. Grimes - Art Angel Much like Halsey, Grimes turned pop music on its head this year. Bucking the notion that women are merely pawns in the grand scheme of pop music, Grimes is a testament to female empowerment. Catchy hooks, beats dripping with style and hipster-cred coupled with honest and provocative lyrics create one of my favorite albums of the year. Trust me, after a few listens you'll be questioning everything. Essential Listens: "Flesh Without Blood", "Artangels", "California" 4. American Beauty / American Psycho - Fall Out Boy A lot of hardcore fans didn't like this record. Whatever the reason, change in sound, more electronic vibes, samples, who knows. I on the other hand rocked out to this thing all year long. With quintessential tracks ranging from bittersweet (Fourth of July), to party ready (American Beauty/American Psycho, to haunting (Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC)), this album has something for everyone. If you're willing to give something new a chance, evolution is always good for rock and roll. Essential Listens: "Centuries", "Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC), "Jet Pack Blues", "The Kids Aren't Alright" 3. Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots I never really gave Twenty-One Pilots a chance. For some reason I aligned them with 5 Seconds of Summer as a virtually commercial outfit with little to no artistry involved. But, I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to 2015's Blurryface, an honest, cold, often harsh look at post-adolescence and the emptiness that often comes with realizing that you're an adult. It hit home. I highly recommend this album for anyone coping with their doomed youth. Essential Listens: "Stressed Out", "Ride", "Fairly Local" 2. The Desired Effect - Brandon Flowers The Killers frontman took us back to the 80's with his second solo effort, The Desired Effect. It's one of those albums you can listen to all day and not even realize it. Diverse and surprising, Flowers generates all sorts of musical stylings from the Robert Palmer-esque "Lonely Town" to the rhythmic departure of "Can't Deny My Love", all the way to the heartland-rock inspired "Dreams Come True" we see the range of the singer's influences like never before. A true masterpiece in the art of pop music, The Desired Effect creates a soundscape on its own level. Retro, fabulous and honest, this is a top recommendation from 2015. Essential Listens: "Dreams Come True", "Lonely Town", "Can't Deny My Love", "Digging Up The Heart" 1. Anthems For Doomed Youth - The Libertines Of course the most unlikely and epic comeback of the year has to top my list. It's no secret that The Libertines are a band that changed my life. Rooted in dirty indie rock, with all the history of an epic novel, this album has been a long time coming, and a long shot to happen. After the messy break up of Britain's most exciting band, most thought the Libs would never come back. Surprise. 2015 was the year everything changed. With irreverent new tracks chronicling the struggles of history (Fame and Fortune), and old favorites finally seeing the light of day (You're My Waterloo) Anthems For Doomed Youth changed the lives of Libertines everywhere. Essential Listens: "Gunga Din", "Heart of the Matter", "You're My Waterloo", "Iceman" What were your favorite albums this year? Make sure to talk about them in the Alternative-Rock community! A totally bitchin' place for all things alternative.
3 lesser-known alternatives to The Black Keys
Rock duo The Black Keys have developed into one of the preeminent (the preeminent?) rock band of the 2000s. They churn out successful record after successful record and have hardly stopped for air. 2014 saw them release "Turn Blue," their eighth studio album, and it didn't disappoint. Above, hear the album's title track. It's great. But maybe you're looking for more. I know I am - while I don't deny the virtue of their success, The Black Keys aren't my favorite, despite them playing pretty much exactly the kind of music that I like. So, if you're anything like me, you are looking for something slightly different. Here are three great, similar alternatives. 1. Heartless Bastards Heartless Bastards actually owe part of their success to The Black Keys, who acted as a middle-man in passing along a demo tape to their record label, Fat Possum Records. They're also from Ohio, and have already released four full-length albums, with a fifth, "Restless Ones," due to be released sometime this month. Below is NPR's First Listen to the record, and early signs point to success. NPR First Listen - "Restless Ones" 2. The Dead Weather The Dead Weather represent the harder rock side of The Black Keys, but the comparison is there to be drawn. It's a supergroup made up of Jack White along with others, including former members of The Raconteurs, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Kills. Unconfirmed reports suggest that there's another album coming from The Dead Weather in 2015, which would be their third. 3. Them Crooked Vultures Another supergroup, formed by former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones. A little less blues-y than The Black Keys, perhaps, but they could scratch an itch.
