Strange times with the Black Keys

Coming from the swampy, minimalistic fuzz-blues background of the Black Keys' past work, the decision to have Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz) produce their upcoming album sounded so surprising, so fresh. I had a hard time picturing what that would sound like. Now I have some idea, and I am even more excited:

Highly recommended: Stream the new Black Keys song "Strange Times" over on their MySpace.

Well, that feels spacey, crisp, and dirty all at once. I would post the mp3 but it looks like other bloggers have been asked to remove it (plus, it's for sale on iTunes) and I don't need to go lookin for woe.

Attack & Release is out April 1 on Nonesuch, and there's a bunch of tour dates coming up.
