The Black Keys – Brothers
Dan Auerback and Patrick Carney produce music that is so freakin’ original!The beats, the lyrics, the mood, the energy… are all incredibly focused and very ‘Black Keys’. This new album, Brothers, has totally won me over. It’s actually getting worn out in my car’s CD player.
“Everlasting Light”, “Next Girl”, “Tighten Up”, “Howlin’ For You”, and “She’s Long Gone” start off the album SO strongly that I usually go back to the beginning everytime I get to track six. BUT… it’s definitely worth it to listen all the way through. From the groovy interlude, “Black Mud”, to the trippy sounds of the final track, “These Days”, each song brings you deeper into the hip, cool, unique world of The Black Keys.
