Familiar Chord

Blues rock duo intoxicates with Magic Potion

It's safe to say that the band's latest, and first for Nonesuch Records, Magic Potion is the Black Keys fermented and aged to perfection. Carney's incessant white noise inebriates the sensual soul of "The Flame" and "Strange Desire" as Auerbach moans in the moonlight and picks up the slide guitar on "Give Your Heart Away." Conveying Mississippi Fred McDowell's "Levee Camp Blues," the songs "Modern Times" and "Goodbye Babylon" offer mournful eulogies for their flooded Promised Land.

"I think I knew all along that we were doing something special," Auerbach concludes. "People still can't really figure out how to describe us or where we belong."

Details

The Black Keys perform Friday, December 8, at the Granada Theater.
