Hanni El Khatib

About a month ago San Francisco's Hanni El Khatib released his second album, Head in the Dirt, on Innovative Leisure. The record was produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and puts an enjoyably pop spin on garage-soul. You can check out the video for new single "Penny" below.

Hanni El Khatib will be touring this fall with Innovative Leisure labelmates Bass Drum of Death, including two stops in NYC: Bowery Ballroom on October 11 and Knitting Factory on October 12. Tickets for Bowery Ballroom on on AmEx presale on Wednesday (6/12) at noon with the general sale on Friday (6/14) at noon. Tickets for Knitting Factory go on sale Friday at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Bass Drum of Death, meanwhile, are about to head out on tour with Unknown Mortal Orchestra. When we first mentioned that tour, BDoD weren't billed to open UMO's free NYC show at Seaport Music Festival on June 28, but they've since been added to that. Their tour also includes two headlining NYC shows in July which happen on July 8 at Shea Stadium (tickets) and July 9 at Glasslands (tickets). BDoD's new self-titled sophomore album will be out June 25. You can stream a track from that and check out their updated tour schedule below.

hani worked on this album with dan auerbach from black keys. That is why it sounds like black keys. Check out his first album... it is a bit different.
