Hanni El Khatib

By popular demand (not that I needed much arm twisting), here’s a bit more music I enjoy.

If you like The Black Keys, I highly recommend Hanni El Khatib. (His latest album, “Head in the Dirt,” was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.)

I heard HEK last year in concert in a small venue. He’s a pretty serious guy and an excellent guitar player. He seems to be lying low at the moment, presumably working on a new NSF grant proposal album.


One of my favorite songs, “Nobody Move”


A phenomenal cover of Louis Armstrong’s “You Rascal You”


Probably the best known one, “Family”


“Penny” wins the award for the least likely (yet phenomenal) pairing of song and video


  1. Wow, this recommendation was spot on for me. I’m a Black Keys fan (especially Brothers and El Camino) and I’m on my second listen through of Head in the Dirt right now.
