  • The Black Keys

    With just a guitar and drums (and occasionally an organ), the Black Keys helped incorporate blues into the 2000’s indie-rock zeitgeist. A duo featuring singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney, the Black Keys’ 2002 debut album, The Big Come Up, and its follow-up, Thickfreakness, were recorded in Carney’s Akron, Ohio basement on an 8-track tape recorder – and would produce singles used by television and film. It was 2004’s Rubber Factory that really cemented the Black Keys’ career, however, landing them great licensing opportunities as well as opening slots for Pearl Jam, Beck, and Radiohead. Though they cut their teeth on raw, minimalist blues rock, the Black Keys explore texture and spacey atmospheres with Danger Mouse on their 2008 release, Attack & Release, and collaborate with hip-hop artists including Mos Def and Ludacris on 2009’s Blakroc. Then in 2010, the band took home three Grammys for their album Brothers.
