2: “Breaks” by The Black Keys

The Black Keys Don't Look At The CameraThat’s the breaks, kid.

The Black Keys have a recent release entitled Brothers (May 2010), named so perhaps to signify their solidarity after frontman/guitarist Dan Auerbach released a solo album a few months earlier.  The “brothers” who make up The Black Keys are Dan and drummer/producer Patrick Carney.

But I share here a classic from a previous album, The Big Come Up (May 2002).  The Keys have filled out their sound a lot on Brothers, adding keyboards, rhythm guitar and more, but this old skool track shows what the duo can do with little more than drums, guitar and a soulful voice.
