LT’s Choice: Little Kid’s Album Logic Songs

This week, instead of posting a playlist, I feel obligated to post an album because no singular album that I have stumbled upon recently has captivated me in a similar fashion to this. 

Little Kid’s Logic Songs was recorded somewhere in Ontario, Canada. The only way we get a feel for where the location is is through the extensive use of train field recordings throughout the album. These overlap with guitar riffs and vocals that mirror the styles of both The Microphones and Elvis Depressedly

The first song starts out slow, as it is more of a cold invitation to the album, as opposed to a warm embrace of what is to come. The album defines itself from the second song out, so bare with it. With that being said, the album is one that is best listened to all the way through. 

Check it out in the bandcamp stream below:

Show Review: The Black Keys Turn Blue World Tour @ KeyArena, Nov 1st

this. concert. was. insane.

being a biased Black Keys fan girl, i was amped about this concert to begin with, but they exceeded my expectations. first of all, the set list was beautiful:

  1. Dead and Gone
  2. Next Girl
  3. Run Right Back
  4. Same Old Thing
  5. Gold On The Ceiling
  6. Strange Times
  7. Nova Baby
  8. Leavin’ Trunk  *if you don’t know this song, go listen! i heard it for the first time at the concert*
  9. Too Afraid To Love You
  10. Howlin For You
  11. A Girl Like You – Edward Collins Cover
  12. Money Maker
  13. Gotta Get Away
  14. She’s Long Gone
  15. Fever
  16. Tighten Up
  17. Your Touch
  18. Lonely Boy

THEN, after about 5-10 minutes of agonizing anxiety, the black keys came back out for an encore. which was

  1. Weight of Love
  2. Turn Blue
  3. Little Black Submarines

needless to say, everyone in the arena was on their feet and screaming the lyrics by the second half of Little Black Submarines. the first half, Dan Auerbach sang and played guitar ballad style, and i’m pretty sure i felt a tear well up in my eye. then, because the duo couldn’t resist, the second half was a crazy headbanger and an amazing way to end the concert. 

the stage lighting was super dope as well. the coordination between the music and lights was well executed and required a serious amount of planning, respect. you can see that in some pictures i have, for example:


The combination of lights and setting was a perfect backdrop


The view from the nosebleeds

yeah, i had nosebleed seats, but it was worth it. if you ever get the chance to see the black keys live, i would recommend it. also, all the people there are cool because they have good taste in music and you all immediately relate to each other. 😉
