Keep It Hid - Dan Auerbach

I recently spent some time with Dan Auerbach's new album Keep It Hid. The first thing you notice is that this is not a big departure from what the Black Keys have been doing. It has a decidedly more laid back feel to it and while it isn't an acoustic album it has that vibe to it. Stand out for me are Whispered Words(written by his father), When the night comes and My last mistake. The first two are a couple of the most quiet songs on the album and My Last Mistake is a small rave up with a M. Ward old time sound to it. This is a truely wonderful intimate album that shouldn't be missed.

Mark, you need to check out an austin artist named bob schneider. after seeing your taste in music I think you'd like him. His best albums are "I'm good now" and "lonelyland"
