The Black Keys are an indie rock duo from Akron, Ohio. The band consists of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney. The release of their first album, The Big Come Up, attracted the attention of Fat Possum Records which provided them a new recording deal. Their first album released under Fat Possum Records was Thickfreakness. Most of the album was recorded in December 2002 during a single 14-hour session in Patrick Carney's basement using an early 1980s 8-track recorder. This recording strategy was required because their small advance payment from Fat Possum Records was spent on rent This album has a heavy blues influence, with guitar licks similar to a Hendrix song, and has a raw garage band vibe sound. While it is likened to a garage rock sound, the album is well written and does not have an unorganized nor under underdeveloped songs; as seen with many 'garage' rock bands on their second album. Patrick Carney claims this album utilizes his "patented recording technique called 'medium fidelity'", which results in an older sounding sound. Thickfreakness put the band on the map, allowing for their popularity to take root. "Set You Free" was featured on the soundtrack for the 2003 movie, School of Rock, which increased their fame. Thickfreakness is a spectacular sophomore album.
