The Black Keys are an American rock duo consisting of vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer/producer Patrick Carney. The band was formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001.Their newest creation, El Camino is the seventh studio album by American blues-rock duo. The album was produced by Danger Mouse and the group itself, and it was recently released on Nonesuch Records.
During the tour for Brothers, the band realized that many of that album’s songs were too slow to translate to a live setting, which led them to write more uptempo tracks for El Camino. Carney said, “This record stemmed from that, the fact that it’s easier for our songs to come across well live if they are fast. So we were just trying to make a guitar rock album that was more upbeat than anything we’ve ever recorded”. If you haven’t gotten into The Black Keys, now is your chance. El Camino is a great upbeat album, with sick baselines, catchy guitar rifts to get you movin’.
