But one listen to the quintet’s warmly wonderful debut album Pacific Surf Line will instantly dispel any preconceptions about supergroup self-indulgence or side-project slumming.
The album – which Brent and Jason co-produced with Scott Hackwith, known for his studio work with the likes of Spiritualized and the Ramones – embodies an open-hearted optimism that’s reflected in the band’s sunny, upbeat songcraft, and in the buoyant, organic performances that show off the quintet’s uncanny, instinctive chemistry.

This Ohio duo indulges in Gories-style minimalism, with a heavier dose of the blues.
Guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney sound like the garage is as far as they'll ever get. Where the White Stripes reminded everyone that alt rock could still contain graceful '60s hooks and prettiness, the Black Keys, with their heroic cover of 'She Said, She Said," drag the Beatles back to the Cavern”. Spin.
“Akron has spawned the most compelling two-piece, hyper-primitive, bluesbased rock band of the last five years. This is one of the five best records of 2002, and bass players everywhere should continue to grow nervous” Village voice.
