Oh wow. Just when I thought I couldn’t cram any more of The Black Keys into my ears, along comes arguably their best project to date. The American blues-rock aficionados who have released seven studio records in as many years have popped up with a collaborative album, drafting in some of hip-hops biggest names to stunning affect.
No real originality shown with their invitees, but more than enough to make up for it in the music. Take some time to watch a few of their nine ‘webisodes’, triumphantly documenting the magic. Look at that, I didn’t even mention the great logo either.
