"Natural Life"

From Hacienda's Shake Down

COLLECTIVE SOUNDS

Liner notes: This breezy nugget suggests a hybrid of garage rock and Motown, as played by the Doobie Brothers.

Behind the music: Four rootsy San Antonio dudes—three Villanueva brothers plus a cousin—are protégés of Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach, who's produced all three of their albums and tapped them as his own backing band.

Check it out if you like: Eclectic modern groups with a sense of history, such as Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, and Delta Spirit.
