The-Black-Keys-El-Camino

There’s no shortage of music getting released every Tuesday, but it’s no secret that most of it is auto-tuned, over-produced, collaborative trash. We want gritty, no bullshit, no nonsense rock that we can put on a flannel, take off our pants and rock out to. Which is precisely why we’re all such huge fans of The Black Keys. Their newest album El Camino is raw, gritty and leaves us feeling a little dirty, but it’s also upbeat, catchy and impossible to turn off. Just to put things in perspective, we got a free “advance” copy of the album and we pre-ordered a copy anyways. Until the writing of these words it’s hard to recall the last time we enjoyed paying for music, but this is definitely one of them. If their next album is anywhere near as good as this one they’ll actually be inducted into the Hall of Fame before their deaths.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
