I have to admit that before the Black Keys’ Brothers I had never listened to the Akron, Ohio, band. I’ve seen the album covers of their previous records because it seems like the indie world is in love with them, but it takes a bit more than critics to make me fall in love with a band. Brothers is an interesting album to me because it fills a slight void in my current music collection. It’s a modern day blues-y record that relies heavily on the rhythm section to keep it a float. It isn’t necessarily a must have record, but it does have a few good songs like “Everlasting Light” and the whistle infused “Tighten Up”,.

Here’s a video of them performing the latter on Letterman.
