Listen to Hanni El Khatib's Straight Rock Banger, "Family"
From the moment you press play on "Family," you know that Hanni El Khatib does not fuck around. The rock 'n' roll renassance man kicks off the first single off his forthcoming sophomore LP Head in the Dirt with an agitated drum fill leading right into a steamrolling four-chord riff and doesn't let up for the next two and a half minutes. Produced by Black Keys' Dan Aurbach in his Nashville studio, "Family" is a no-frill-all-kill straight rock jam. Check it out below, and look out for Head in the Dirt, out 4/30 on Innovative Leisure.
