I am experiencing Black Keys fatigue.

Symptoms include: Losing the ability to tell songs from their last two albums apart, having no interest in hearing the newest record in its entirety, realizing I don’t really care, wondering if they’ve considered taking more than 6 months off between albums and tours, wondering when their sound got so predictable, wondering if they are ever going to surprise me again, thinking that maybe they seemed fresher when they were making garage-band stomp music, thinking that their new emphasis on 60s retro makes them seem like a couple of self-aware hipsters, and reading a Rolling Stone profile in which, frankly, they kind of sounded like assholes.

Credit where it’s due: “Lonely Boy,” the single from their latest album, is pretty tight. And the video is extremely awesome.
