The new Black Keys album, Brothers, is so damn good. You could maybe whine about it not being as raw and gritty as they used to be, but I don’t ever expect a band to do the same thing over and over again. I’m reminded of the change in sound Iron & Wine has gone through – which took me a while to warm up to. It’s a more produced, polished sound – and though it may not be for everyone, it’s something new, and I dig it. And when I need that raw and gritty sound, I’ll just put on Thickfreakness.
