Until this album, guitarist-singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney of the Black Keys took an extreme do-it-yourself approach to record making. Attack & Release is the result of one of the most audacious – and eagerly anticipated – collaborations in alternative rock history. As producer, Auerbach and Carney chose Danger Mouse, the mega-eclectic sonic mastermind behind the Grammy Award-winning Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere and its multi-format hit, "Crazy," as well as the music-industry provocateur who created the mother of all mash-ups, The Grey Album. The Black Keys also designed to work at an established studio. Suma Recording, a legendary spot in northeast Ohio renowned for its supply of great vintage gear, provided just the right ambiance for the guys. As Carney put it, Suma "smells like a moldy cabin and looks like a haunted house." On the Nonesuch Label.
