We’re just a little over a month away from the end of 2011, and if you’re Mayan, the end of the world in general. This time of year typically prompts musicheads to start formulating their “best of lists”. While it can be an exciting and rewarding experiment, I caution you to not reach your conclusions too soon. With releases still come from The Roots, The Black Keys, and others it may be foolish to back just one horse without first surveying the remaining competition.

Speaking of horses, The Black Keys’ new album El Camino is set to release on December 6th. Just in time for the holidays. Since people hate waiting, Dan and Pat decided to leak out a few tracks to keep folks sedated until next Tuesday. Simply enter your social security number, mother’s maiden name and shoe size in the box thingy after the jump.

Songs included: “Lonely Boy”, “Run Right Back”, “Gold On The Ceiling”, “Little Black Submarines” and “Sister”.
