[new] The Black Keys – Tighten Up

By Will Oliver, March 20th 2010 — with 12 comments MP3

The Black Keys have returned with a new song, and millions of garage rock fans around the globe just got their world rocked. The new song is called “Tighten Up”, and it is the only Danger Mouse song produced on their new album, Brothers. Danger Mouse left his footprint all over the song creating a soulful buzz around the Black Keys already pretty soulful sound. The song is a pretty tight jam that grooves along with confidence and ease. Dan Auerbach has one of the best voices in rock ‘n roll today, totally underrated. I think these guys are one of the few modern groups who are truly reviving rock ‘n roll. Keeping it real, one jam at a time.

They put the song on their myspace for stream, and to no one’s surprise a web rip surfaced from the depths of the garage. It’s a low quality webrip, but it still rocks hard.

    The Black Keys can do no wrong-no band can match them live. Hope their new record is as good as “Attack & Release”.

    The Black Keys “Tighten Up” is a great song, the Production is sick the drums and bass with that organ go so hard like hip hop with great lyrics I’m a new fan can’t wait to hear more.
