Rubber Factory was recorded by The Black Keys, themselves, in an old tire factory they rented space from in their hometown of Akron, OH on a reel-to-reel recorder w/ tape that was recycled from old fried chicken commercials that never made it to radio. It captures the powerful sound of this drums and guitar two-piece perfectly.

These riffs take you on a journey. The use of delay is incredible. The way they jam out on their instruments makes its fun to listen to. Incredible stuff. Can't wait for them to tour in the US Matt Morgan
I've listened to you low.
I've listened to you high.
I've listened at dawn and I've listened at night.
I've listened when in a hurry. And I've listened when taking it slow.
I've listened when stressed and when chill. I've listened when biking, walking, swimming, sleeping, driving, riding on the subway, and flying on a plane.
Basically, you fit amazingly into anything I do at any time. One of the best albums I've heard in my life. Respect and <3 Vesela Simeonova
