Dan Auerbach Brings the Grit

Posted in Uncategorized by huckd on January 29, 2009


I love the dirty blues. Bands like the White Stripes and the Black Keys have given a mainstream rebirth to this awesomely brutal bastard child of rock. Dan Auerbach, guitarist from the aforementioned band from Akron, has posted 3 songs from his upcoming solo debut set to hit stores February 10.

Heavy synth keyboards, a whirling organ and a work horse rhythm section drives the track “I Want Some More.”¬† The guitar scathes with grit: it sounds like noise from an early horror movie. The keys sound similar to the heart-wrenching organ play of Dylan’s 1997 love-slain album “Time Out of Mind.”

The track moves from 70’s freak rock to beautifully atmospheric garage-blues in a manner that only begs a listen.
