Bullet in the Brain by The Black Keys

TBK “Bullet In The Brain”– Possibly my favorite song on the new album, this track shows up right in the middle of the album.  It starts off really slow with Dan softly singing and strumming an acoustic guitar, as other instruments slowly come into the mix.  This provides a nice build for the song, which then launches into an entirely different gear after about a minute into the track.  At this point when the first verse kicks in, there’s a great bass line that is prominent in the mix along with some trademark Danger Mouse tinkling keyboard sounds.  There is also a haunting keyboard sound that permeates the song.  Anyway, this track is one I find popping into my brain all the time when I think about the current album. 

(could only find live versions of the song)
