It’s ridiculously cold in Minneapolis today and I woke up wishing I would have slept in a sweatshirt and stocking cap. One of those days when you wonder why people live here. Today’s song of the day helps break the winter doldrums. The Black Keys are one of today’s best bands going and, before the more polished Brothers and El Camino albums and ensuing popularity, their debut album The Big Come Up was released. It still holds up as probably their best album and I’ll feature one of my favorite tracks.
