What I am listening to: ‘Brothers’
The Black Keys: their new album, “Brothers” is the bluez-iest. There are so many one-liners in this record, I can’t wait to start breakin’ hearts!
Like its predecessors, Brothers is remarkably, consistently strong stuff, though this one feels a bit tamer, with more of an R&B influence. The album was recorded mostly in a studio dripping with the sounds of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and The Rolling Stones (circa Sticky Fingers), and even finds The Black Keys covering soul singer Jerry Butler.
