The Black Keys 

Brothers (Nonesuch)

For all of Danger Mouse’s inspired pairings, from James Mercer of The Shins (Broken Bells) to Cee-Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley), there was something special about his work behind the dials for blues-rock duo The Black Keys on its last record, Attack and Release. On Brothers, the Keys mostly go it alone---Mouse produced only the record’s first single, “Tighten Up”---but keep his widescreen sound intact, bringing a massive scope to every fuzzed-out riff and bass-drum kick. Brothers isn’t as charmingly efficient as its predecessor---it’s about 20 minutes longer---but worth it for the soulfully slow gems buried in its second half.
