Since eighth Black Keys LP Turn Blue
dropped in 2014, frontman Dan Auerbach put out both Yours, Dreamily
with garage hook meisters the Arcs and sophomore solo disc Waiting on a Song
last year. Now, out of his analog-as-hell Easy Eye Sound Studios in Nashville, the guitarist helms an old-school soul revue showcasing not only his own the-Band-at-Stax grooves and Robert Finley’s soul/blues/gospel mash-up
, but Oakland’s Shannon & the Clams, whose new Onion
LP sounds like a 1963 Top 40 chart.
