DAN AUER­BACH Wait­ing on a Song

Easy Eye Records

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS - LAU­REN MUR­PHY

If you are go­ing to write an al­bum that’s a “love let­ter to Nashville”, you need help with the pen­man­ship. Most of Dan Auer­bach’s ca­reer has dealt in the prim­i­tive end of the blues-rock spec­trum with The Black Keys, but his sec­ond solo al­bum plun­ders a more laid­back path with con­tri­bu­tions from some of Mu­sic City’s finest play­ers. Duane Eddy, Mark Knopfler, John Prine and more help shape these 10 songs, adding warmth and depth to the mel­low, 1970s-style pro­duc­tion. From the sun-dap­pled Mal­ibu

Man to the toe-tappy Shine on Me and Nils­son-style stand­out King

of a One Horse Town, this is a beau­ti­fully played and per­fectly paced record that may sur­prise those who wrote Auer­bach off as a mu­si­cian who dealt solely in mono­chrome. danauer­bach.com
