Amoeba Review

Dan Auerbach fronts one of the world’s most popular rock bands, The Black Keys. As great as that must be, it must also feel a little limiting, given the wild, funky psychedelia of his new project, The Arcs. Tracks like “Out of My Mind” feature Auerbach’s trademark smoky vocals and the kind of heavy beats that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Black Keys record, but in place of heavy power chords is a lush concoction of snarling ’007 riffs, off-time funk chords and erratic paisley noise. The cowboy blues-style “Pistol” and swirling R&B of “Stay in my Corner” follow, giving Yours, Dreamily, the feel of a soulful, stylish pastiche of ’60s-influenced sounds. But it’s also an album full of modern sounds, like the groaning mechanical beat and samples underpinning “Everything You Do.” Auerbach, working with a number of collaborators from Daptone bands and others, sounds freer than he has in some time, without the weight of The Black Keys’ name hanging over him. Given the reinvigoration The Arcs seems to have provided Auerbach, it’s hopefully a project he’ll continue beyond this dynamite debut.
