The Black Keys – Delta Kream

June 13, 2021

I have been grooving to the new The Black Keys album, Delta Kream, since it came out. I liked it enough that I picked it up on wax and what a revelation the LP is: the vinyl is analog heaven. The sound of the LP is absolutely nasty – some serious endless boogie. The guitars are deep and guttural. The drums are nice and loud and the vocals add sweetens to the mix. This is the Keys at their finest.

The album celebrates the band’s roots & features songs by R.L. Burnside & Junior Kimbrough. The opening track is the blues standard “Crawling King Snake” (a hit for John Lee Hooker, but the Keys take a Junior Kimbrough approach).

It is great to hear the Keys after all their success, return to their roots. This is highly recommended on vinyl. The vinyl mix is thick and tasty – it reminds me of soft caramel.
