Black Pistol Fire Brings that Fresh Blues

Black Pistol Fire Brings that Fresh Blues

Black Pistol Fire splits their time between Toronto and Austin, bringing their jamming cross between southern blues and garage rock both north and south.  There's no doubt that these guys could probably be mistaken for The Black Keys; singer Kevin McKeown's vocals sound like an uncanny mix between Jack White and Dan Aurbach, but there's something to be said about the two person band that really brings it.  Anyways, this genre of music is too enjoyable not to shrug off their similarities to any other band.  Besides, they're doing the blues right so what more can a music lover ask for?  BPF takes us back, and reminds us that every rock band we hear today came from blues in some shape or form, and thank god there are those who continue to carry out the tradition. -Jake Saunders
