#4. Dan Auerbach – Keep It Hid

So this is the singer in The Black Keys and this is his solo debut. And this is oh so good! It has a cleaner sound than The Black Keys but perhaps more raw, more desire and despair, more depth and bad behaviour (and lyrics like “if they ask you, baby, what I did, you gotta keep it hid”)
