Press has been surrounding the musical legend Dr. John and his release, Locked Down. The album was produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach after their unforgettable 2011 Bonnaroo performance. Locked Down carries Dr. John‘s tradition of jumping and mixing genres with his Tom Waits meets Captain Beefheart southern, soul drenched growl. On the record, Auerbach takes the American roots music that The Black Keys have reinterpreted and championed and applies it to the living legend. Throughout the album you’ll recognize the soulful, bouncing back up melodies, tight drums, and autumn toned guitar & vocals The Black Keys have become known for. As Pitchfork put it in their recent review, “The Black Key not only respects Dr. John‘s southern-fried eccentricities but amplifies them.”
