Brothers was primarily cut at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama and the result by the duo was an even more intensely focused, deeply soulful set that includes a cover of Jerry Butler's "Never Gonna Give You Up." The performances are inventive and impassioned: Dan Auerbach extends his vocal range to falsetto on the lead-off track "Everlasting Light" and "The Only One"; "Howlin' For You" opens with a Gary Glitter-style drum riff and the chorus practically invites singing along. The tunes offer a surprising amount of lyrical candor and more than a little dark humor; the grooves alternate between ballsy swagger and bluesy rumination.
Danger Mouse returned to co-produce "Tighten Up" on Brothers, but for the most part, the duo was on its own during their 10 day stretch at Muscle Shoals. They did additional recording at Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound System in Akron and The Bunker in Brooklyn. The album was mixed by engineer Tchad Blake, a veteran of sessions with Los Lobos, Pearl Jam and Peter Gabriel. Says Carney, "The way he approaches mixing is the same way we approach making music. Respecting the past while being in the present."
Brothers debuted at No. 2 in the U.S. and went on to win three Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award, as well as topping numerous year-end lists, including iTunes, NPR, and Rolling Stone. It is now certified RIAA platinum.
