6. Thickfreakness – Thickfreakness is the second studio album by American rock duo The Black Keys, released in 2003. It is their debut release for the Fat Possum record label, although in the UK, the bands debut album The Big Come Up had been tremendously successful for an independent rock band and Thickfreakness further increased their profile. It continues The Black Keys tradition of raw, heavy blues-influenced garage rock, songs such as Set You Free won the pair some mainstream success as being featured in the soundtrack of the 2003 film School of Rock. Heavy comparisons to another American blues-influenced garage rock duo, The White Stripes, were made by the music media. Most of the album was recorded in December 2002 during a single 14-hour session in Patrick Carneys basement using an early 1980s Tascam 388 8-track recorder and this approach was necessary because the group spent its small advance payment from Fat Possum Records on rent. The liner notes claim this is Carneys patented recording technique called medium fidelity, the result is an older sounding sound. The song Midnight in Her Eyes is one of the few Black Keys songs that used a bass guitar, part of Set You Free was recorded by Jeff Saltzman. The album included two covers, Have Love, Will Travel by Richard Berry and Everywhere I Go by north Mississippi bluesman Junior Kimbrough, Thickfreakness was The Black Keys first breakthrough album, it established them as an indie-rock blues band.

The band recorded it four or five different ways before playing it in a sparse, the group had a louder version of the song, but since they felt it wasnt completely working, they spliced it after the acoustic version to create a mix with two contrasting sections. According to drummer Patrick Carney, the second half was the first time that the band played that arrangement. He said, That whole ending is the first take we played, thats why that part of the album feels the loosest. Its live in the studio, just guitar and drums, with the instruments bleeding into each other, Auerbach called the electric portion of Little Black Submarines the closest representation of our live show than anything weve done before. The song concludes with a solo that Auerbach described as his jock-rock moment. The venue, formerly a speakeasy, was the first place in the city to obtain a liquor license, Auerbach said, Its a really cool building. Its got a lot of history and its one of three or four different little small dive bars in town. Its special because its so old, the Black Keys allowed a small number of fans into the venue for filming of the one song before deciding to play an entire show. They originally had a storyline in mind for the video but ultimately abandoned the idea in favor of a performance video. Auerbach said, We all just sort of kind of mutually agreed that it should probably just be the performance, luckily we had live footage so we turned it into a live video. We just sort of said You know, it was fun kind of performing here at a club with the fans. Why dont we just have it be that, the video premiered on September 4,2012
