Music and album reviews from the staff of 89.3 The Current.

Album of the Week: The Black Keys, "Let's Rock"

The Black Keys,

You hear all the trademarks of The Black Keys on "Let's Rock" - the fuzzed out guitar tones, crushing drums, and the melodic rock songs that take in bits of influence from 70s AM radio choruses, and scuzzy garage rock.

Prince, 'Originals'

If you want to hear Prince laying down the coos that would guide Appollonia, the grooves that Sheila E would make famous, and even the song that Kenny Rogers got a piece - look no further.

Album of the Week: Silversun Pickups, 'Widow's Weeds'
