Hanni el Khatib – Fuck it. You win.

One silver lining of being so sick and confined like a leper, has been the opportunity to finally clear up the encroached chaos that is the room I’ve been living in; that and listening to some fine new music.

One fella in particular has had a lot of replay in the last few days is Hanni el Khatib, an LA based singer/songwriter whose influences include (but aren’t limited to) the blues, garage rock, punk and doo-wop; and his debut album Will the Guns Come Out has this great raw edge sound that’s reminiscent of The Black Keys and The White Stripes. Hell, Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys will be producing his second album, so that’s got to count for something.
