The shaggy-haired Canadian rock band The Sheepdogs released three albums independently before entering Rolling Stone magazine's "Choose the Cover" competition in 2011. The group beat out 15 other competitors to win, and in the process scored a major-label record deal — not to mention an appearance on Project Runway.

Given that The Sheepdogs' members draw from Southern rock and blues, it makes sense that Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney would produce their new, self-titled album. The group performs songs from the new album in this concert from World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
