Our sister blog, West Coast Sound, has caught a lot of shit lately for their disdain for neo-blues rockers The Black Keys. Just remember we're only critics, and opinions are just opinions. Nicholas Pell even offered up some alternative blues bands for you to dig. The problem is, as commenter AlexNicely pointed out, none of des blues bands are 'round no mo'. Pell responded with, "I couldn't make a list of five contemporary bands in that genre I like, but someone else probably could." Hey, that someone is me!
