Dammit. I really like the latest Black Keys album Brothers and believe me I really really tried not to. I resisted when music gurus, people I respect, told me it was good. I simply nodded and thought, "Uh huh, no way brother." Don't ask me why. It's just stupid stubborn contrariness for no reason. Well, I suppose there is a reason but it's even more idiotic than the contrariness. It's the same reason I refuse to listen to the new Arcade Fire album and the same reason I refused to listen to Bjork's album Medulla for over a year, and I adore Bjork. That started to change when Evie put Everlasting Light on a mix for me and then I had no choice. Totally hooked.
Now I have to eat crow and say all sorts of lovely things. But what can I say boys? I guess I was just too pig-headed to love you. Badum ching.
