*[consequenceofsound.net] With the year’s 28th best album and 3rd best song, The Black Keys had a fairly successful 2010. That’s of course without mentioning some kickin’ festival performances. And that Grammy nomination, too. While it remains to be seen what 2011 holds for the duo, they will get off to a fast start when they serve as the musical guests for the January 8th episode of Saturday Night Live. Jim Carrey will be the evening’s host.
*A message from Postdata (Paul Murphy of Wintersleep)...
"Hey there Postdata friends/enthusiasts. Another year whistling by. I had a dream last night in which it turned out that Santa Claus was real. I was at a party and he was there, digging in [I dare say] a little heavily into the punch. He was in good enough spirits I suppose but I kept feeling a cold vibe from him, as if he really held against me all those years of non-belief. Maybe he just wanted all the punch. Bastard. Anyway, it made me feel guilty. Not guilty, but maybe it just made me feel like giving. And so here is a couple songs that weren't included on the Postdata s/t album proper... Recorded with Mike during an Easter break. What is with all the work on holiday weekends?! I have to start thinking about Christmas lit, not specifically Christmas in theme, just something to read on my travels to Yarmouth. Any suggestions?"
