The Black Keys weren’t exactly small potatoes before, but they got absolutely huge with their last album, 2010’s Brothers. And so they deserve credit for cranking out a follow-up without wasting any time and for sticking to the ferocious blues-rock pound that brought them to the table in the first place. Their new El Camino is out in the usual illegal internet spots today. What do you, the readers of Stereogum, think of it?
El Camino is out 12/6 on Nonesuch.
