“They might pretend they like you, but man’s best friend will bite you just for fun.”

The opening lines of the second track to The Arc’s debut album give a bit of a hint as to what the atmosphere of the 14 track collection will be: a lyrical dose of doomed relationships, the harsh realities of the world outside our windows, the surprise of each day, and the bite of new love.

Yours, Dreamily is the fuzzy, warbly, and groovy product of a collaboration between Dan Auerbach and a slew of impeccably bluesy musicians. Auerbach himself, one half of the Ohio native Black Keys, has crafted his take on blues-infused rock n’ roll since before the Black Keys formed in 2011. With his solo material, his producing, and his side-projects, Auerbach has been able to push his personal song crafting and knowledge of the blues with his own explorations and by surrounding himself with other inspiring talent.

The debut from the Arc’s sees Auerbach taking the spot of vocals and guitar but also includes a little help from his friends: songwriter and producer Richard Swift, guitarist Kenny Vaughan, Tchad Blake, Daptone Records members Nick Movshon, Leon Michels, and Homer Steinweiss, and the all female mariachi band from New York–Mariachi Flor de Toloache.

The album as a whole moves gently at times and keeps plenty of space between the wheels and the curb, but then at other times it jumps the curb in favor of a more rambunctious and energetic sound, as if the members of the band saw what they were doing and got incredibly excited about the moment they were in. The sounds are inspired from the early 70’s and it’s not too hard to picture stumbling upon a dusty copy of this record in your favorite record shop’s bins.

Sexy, groove-laden, and soulful as can be, Yours, Dreamily can be streamed over at NPR or via the player below before its release Sept. 4.
