The Black Keys ‘BR O T HER S’ (NONESUCH)
As someone who never responded to the bluesinspired, Zeppelin-esque fuzz of The White Stripes and similar groups, I could never be bothered with The Black Keys, writing them off as another throw-back group kneeling at the altar of Robert Plant. But a brazen recommendation by a trusted sonic ally persuaded me to give “Brothers” a spin, and I’m still picking gravel from my chin where my jaw hit the ground. To these ears, “Brothers” is a near-perfect collision of Marc Bolan swagger and Spoon’s grittier moments, and it is one of the most exhilarating albums I have heard this year. My first thought was the bizarro compliment that every song sounds like music from the most stylish sporting event in history; stirring, amped-up anthems that retain their potency and sense of attractive menace. The record is one long highlight, but “Next Girl” inches ahead, so full of soulful vocals and raw, squelching guitar and leads “Brothers” to the short list for year’s Coolest Record.
