The Black Keys new album Brothers comes out on May 18th.  It’s exactly what you might expect from the Keys and, in my opinion, it further solidifies their reign as the current heavyweight champs of real, head bobbing, lip curling rock.  For better or worse, they’re a bit more bluesy than other great modern day rock bands with a similar sound (like The Dead Weather and Band of Skulls) but that’s probably why I like the Keys the most.  It’s simple, authentic rock.
