This is……Hanni El Khatib


Picked up this new album from Hanni El Khatib  yesterday. Played three times all the way through before I had to leave for work. It has that garage punk vibe that I love so much. That primal beat that just makes you know this is what you love about rock n roll.

from AllMusic (short bio)

Hanni El Khatib

With a blend of blues, garage, folk, and good old-fashioned rock & roll crooning, San Francisco native Hanni El Khatib worked as a creative director for HUF before making a name for himself as a singer/songwriter. With a sound that evokes the eclectic mashups and warbling voice of Devendra Banhart and the grungy blues of Jon Spencer, Khatib made his debut with a pair of singles released on Stones Throw imprint Innovative Leisure in 2010. In 2011, Khatib opened for Florence + the Machine before eventually releasing his full-length debut, Will the Guns Come Out. For his next album, El Khatib teamed up with producer (and Black Keys member) Dan Auerbach, who added a new level of polish to his 2013 sophomore effort, Head in the Dirt
