Black Keys Attack and Release.
One of my favorite bands The Black Keys has a new album (Attack and Release) coming out in April. The new album is fantastic. This album was produced by Danger Mouse a fact that had me a little nervous when i first heard he'd be helming but boy did it work out. Everything that is great about the Keys is still intact, that dirty blues sound, driving drums and phenomenal guitar work still shine. The thing that really jumps out at you from the git go is the additional instruments on the album. It's always been drums and guitar but on the very first track (Things ain't like they used to be) we hear an organ! Wait until you get to Same old Thing, that's right son, a flute in the mix!! Like Iron & Wine's new album this disc really benefits from a fuller sound. I could go on and on about how great and refreshing the album sounds but I think you get the point.
