ROCK | The Black Keys


Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney pretty much broke through into super-band territory with the release of 2010's "Brothers" and 2011's "El Camino," and their 2014 album, "Turn Blue," may be The Black Keys' biggest yet. The guitar and drums are mint as per usual, and the addition of heavy synthesizers in some songs are pulled off right, not drowning out the other sounds and synthesizers can tend to do (see 1980's Rush). The "Turn Blue" single "Fever" feels like a hit along the lines of "Gold on the Ceiling," and titular song "Turn Blue" further highlights the new, fantastic direction The Black Keys took with its latest release.

The Black Keys and Cage the Elephant play Sunday, September 14, at the Blue Cross Arena, 100 Exchange Boulevard. 8 p.m. $46-$95.;
