The Arcs On World Cafe

The Arcs.
The Arcs.

When The Black Keys had to take time off as drummer Patrick Carney recovered from a shoulder injury, his bandmate, Dan Auerbach, wasted no time. Auerbach put together a group of musicians with whom he'd toured, recorded and produced. That's how Leon Michels, Nick Movshon, Homer Steinweiss, Richard Swift and Kenny Vaughan — along with Auerbach — became The Arcs.

The Arcs' music isn't the same blues-rock we've come to expect from The Black Keys; it's, as Auerbach puts it, more "weird." Hear the result, performed live in the World Cafe studio, on today's show.
