The Black Keys: Turn Blue
Buy! - (Nonesuch)
The eighth studio album from the Nashville-via-Akron, OH duo is a more subtle and atmospheric take on the band’s sound. As with their last few albums, this one was co-produced by Danger Mouse (who also co-wrote all of the songs and plays keyboards on the album), and he helps provide them with a moody, electronic-tinged sound incorporating elements of woozy psych-rock, cinematic ‘70s soul, slinky funk and hip hop on subtly seductive songs combining bluesy psych guitars and a variety of other instrumentation with propulsive rhythms and dark lyrics of a failed relationship. 5/9/2014 - Don Yates
