February: a Good Month for Music

Some good things happened in music this month.

The Black Keys won Grammy awards for Best Alternative Album, (Brothers) Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals, Best Recording Package and Producer of the Year, Non Classical. Arcade Fire won a Grammy for Album of the Year, The Suburbs.

Here are The Black Keys in Howlin’ for You from Brothers:

Drive By Truckers have been extremely prolific lately.

Go Go Boots is quite dark, even for DBT who are not known for a cheerful demeanor. Used to be a Cop:

Finally, a new video from The New Pornographers. Nice take on the “Rise and Fall of a Rock Band”  genre, posted last week on YouTube:
