From album to album, Auerbach and Carney have done what few bands are able to accomplish and that’s offer a high level of consistency. Brothers sits nicely as the next step in their collection of studio works. Still remarkable over the course of their career is how much sound these two guys produce. "She’s Long Gone" on the new album is a robust rocker dripped in fuzz and highlighted by a blistering Auerbach guitar solo to close out the track.
The duo's last album Attack And Release was produced by Danger Mouse and the high demand studio wizard is again part of the festivities on Brothers. The album standout, "Tighten Up" sees Danger Mouse at the helm and is easily the albums most accessible song.
Right out of the gate The Keys bring the rock on Brothers with undeniable moments like "Everlasting Light" and "Next Girl." The 15 song collection leaves little doubt as to why this band continues to see their career moving in right direction.
