The Black Keys – Tighten Up

The Black Keys’ new album – entitled Brothers – will be released on May 18.  There’s not much that they do that I think is wrong, and this new track from the album is no exception to that.  “Tighten Up” was produced by Danger Mouse, who was at the helm for Attack & Release as well.  And while there’s not a big departure here from the normal Keys fare, it’s still a solid song.  I particularly enjoy when it sounds like everything goes into an audio drain, although that could be because this is a web rip.  You can listen to the track on the band’s MySpace for any differences.

This past weekend I purchased tickets to The Flaming Lips show at a venue close to Rochester, where it’s being reported that The Black Keys will be the opening act.  I can’t find this information on their website however, so I’ll keep hope alive until I see some kind of confirmation.
