I LOVE THE BLACK KEYS. The psychedelic duo encompass soul, rock and folk. Though it sounds like a rough musical experiment, the Black Keys have mastered their multifaceted funky style. Their producer D.J “Danger Mouse”, also known as the counterpart to Gnarles Barkley, has ensured once again added his Midas touch to this collection of quality music. I am enamored with DangerMouse, so subsequently checked out The Black Keys. Each song has a distinct sound yet The Black Keys maintain a quirky continuity.
I basically drool over The Keys. The single thing I love most is their originality. Lately, artists have put themselves in a box, so it is hard to find a musical talent who takes risks. This band has filled my void. The Ohio natives enable easy listening. Simply, The Black Keys are wonderfully unpredictable. The Keys took a slight hiatus but thankfully have returned. Attack and Release is their newest album. The newest cuts are better than ever.
If not, Check out ”Psychotic Girl” and “Strange Times.” You’ll get hooked. Trust me.
