I’m a sucker for a nicely delivered jangling riff and so 10 seconds was all it took of ‘Don’t Bother Me’ before I was sold. According to the Blakes all the song has to offer is 2 chords and a vibe. This very trick served the Strokes pretty well for a couple of albums so the Blakes shouldn’t worry too much. Made up of brothers Garnet and Snow Keim with Bob Husak on drums they give off a distinctly British attitude that probably bleeds from their swaggering intolerance for being told what to do. Sure the gratification is instant but aren’t the most memorable moments in life the ones that come so readily. Some time soon the Blakes could be universally lauded for their sweet sonic poetry. KD
