Aural Pleasure Review

Hacienda: 'Shakedown'

Photo: , License: N/A


The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach's influence is clear on Hacienda's third album; his production hallmarks stand out, as when he pushes the drums to the forefront and puts the vocals and guitars down in the mix to give the songs a rowdy live feel. But Hacienda has a sound that's all their own, a poppy stomp with a throwback feel on songs like "Veronica," the unabashedly retro "Let Me Go," and the loopy lead single "Savage" that owes as much to Doug Sahm's rollicking Tex-Mex as it does to neo-electric blues. A perfect lead-off for summer driving in the city.
