A walk in the Park, Volume 208

WARDEN TRACKS... Today's song comes from a band that has been around for well-over a decade but didn't hit it big until about four years ago.  Their last album was 2011's "El Camino," and they're busy working on the follow-up album right now, so you can expect it sometime in 2014.  They are, of course, The Black Keys, and today's track absolutely blew me away when they last visited Edmonton with a show at Rexall Place in the Spring of '11.  Click on the album graphic to the right, and groove on with "LITTLE BLACK SUBMARINES"!
