Biography

When Hanni El Khatib started out, he was just a skater kid playing the world's worst guitar and singing by himself. Inspired by a long line of determined do-it-for-themselves musicians winding back through punk and psychedelia to rock 'n' roll and early r&b and finally the first scratchy years of the blues, he'd record song after bare-bones song -- in between day jobs and ...

Product Description

Hanni El Khatib is back with his second album Head In The Dirt produced by Dan Auerbach of the Grammy Award-winning band The Black Keys. Hanni El Khatib s breakout debut Will The Guns Come Out led to all kinds of success not least having his music licensed to HBO and Showtime television series, and adverts for Nike and Captain Morgan. In 2012, however, he showed up to record his second album with just the clothes on his back no guitar, no fancy almost-finished demos, and only about three weeks time to get from start to finish. While on tour, he'd met Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys in a Paris bar. After some whisky, they decided to partner up in Auerbach s Nashville studio. The idea was to erase everything Hanni had become comfortable with and to make an album out of only raw instinct and inspiration. The result is Head In The Dirt , in which Hanni El Khatib makes the entire history of rebel music his own over eleven tracks. There are cut-to-the-bone rhythm n blues songs ( Save Me ) and overcranked Stooges-style stompers ( Family ). There are bottomless Black Sabbath riff-outs (the back half of Pay No Mind ) and dubbed-out garage rock tunes ( Nobody Move ) that call up the spirits of the Clash and the Equals. His Low is just one Andre 3000 remix away from a club anthem, Penny is a stick-in-your-head pop hit, and Sinking In The Sand is a freak-out headbanger

Packed full of catchy tunes, this is an excellent follow up to "Will the guns come out" and shows there is much more to come from HEK. Now I just wanna see him play - please come to the UK!

Good album. Some great tracks. 1 or 2 fillers but great listen in the car. Will have to check out other albums by the guy.

A really great album, its great to hear something fresh with that old rock & roll style, a great album to listen to not one track is bland, I beleive it was recorded live as well which always gives a much rawer sound.

Good Cd but not quite as raw as "...guns..." a lot more pop music like. Some good tracks however, well worth buying IMO.
