The Detroit duo the Black Keys brought their primal rock to the Letterman stage last night, playing the lead single (“Tighten Up”) off their new album Brothers. Last week PopMatters’ David Gassman said of the album, “thankfully, as the telegraphically back-to-basics cover art would suggest, Brothers finds Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney regaining some of the sweaty basement immediacy that characterized their best work.”
