A strong and rocking blues EP.
It probably comes as no surprise that The Black Shades sound remarkably like the early Black Keys. Oh well. Told Ya So(/i> works because it follows a tried-and-true method of songwriting: rocking those blues. In only four tracks, the bands plays enough blues to last a long while. It’s worth a spin.
