Attack & Release ~ The Black Keys


Attack & Release is the fifth album by American blues-rock duo, The Black Keys. It is their second release on Nonesuch Records, and the first produced in a studio. It was released on April 1, 2008, and debuted at #14 on the Billboard 200 [1]. The song "I Got Mine" was number 23 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008.

People who frequent the 'Rate the last album you listened to' topic may have noticed me always giving this album a very high score. To me, it's one of the few albums I know where I love every song on it, I could listen to it everyday, it simply rocks.

3. "Strange Times"

4. "Psychotic Girl"

Seek Magic - Memory Tapes (2009)

The perfect embodiment of the decade, and released at the end of it. Recorded and mixed by Dayve Hawke from his New Jersey residence (under the aliases Weird Tapes and Memory Cassette), shared with the world via a humble blog for two years before going 'viral' when Gorilla vs. Bear unearthed it and shared it with the world. if that isn't enough of an homage to the magic of the internet, the music itself is wonderful and it blends electronic sounds with more spacey sounds without letting either get too overwhelming. It is a splendid album and where the Big Pink failed to deliver, Seek Magic was everything I could have hoped for from Memory Tapes and then some.
