[MP3/STREAM] The Minutes – “Secret History” & “Black Keys”

you do your own town and i’ll do mine

♫ The Minutes – Secret History

  • Who: Mark, Tom, & Shane
  • What: Raucous garage/blues rock, like J. Roddy Walston, Mona, The Black Keys
  • Where: Dublin, Ireland + Facebook / Soundcloud / Bandcamp / Amazon
  • When: Debut album Marcata is out now.
  • Why: The Irish have long been known for getting rowdy but not often enough to we get that energy funneled into guitar shredding pit-rock like this! The Minutes rip fast, quick, and catchy on “Secret History” but it’s “Black Keys” that I’ll be going mental for when they play our SXSW party on Wednesday. That is also when I’ll be buying their full LP Mercata so I can rock solid all year long.
