Da/\/ Auerbach - KIH
The solo disc from the frontman of the two man ohio rock group "The Black Keys". Of course it goes without saying that you will love this if you love the Black Keys, or gritty, fuzzy, noisy, rock and roll. The songs on "Keep It Hid" are a lot more mellow than most of the Keys stuff. There seems to be more country influence involved. I would tend to guess this was recorded in their basement because the sound is a retrospective back to their early releases like The Big Come Up, where in which they used that space to help the overall sound to be more gritty and dirty. Enjoy, Part 1, Part 2.
