Dan Auerbach, the singing and guitaring Black Key, never needs a band with his main gig. But the breadth of his solo joint Keep It Hid, with its blues-psych syrup brewed from intuitive touches of analog fuzz, parlor organ, and other voices supporting his own hardwood Midwestern keen, further establishes Auerbach as a dude with the vision to reach beyond the boundaries of a blues rock duo and Bonnaroo beard. Frailties are in play, as are demons, destruction, and the blood of his Akron, Ohio home. Get drenched. With Hacienda and Those Darlins.
