    The Black Keys, Randy Newman Make Rolling Stone's "The 100 Best Albums of the 2010s" List

    As the 2010s come to a close, music writers and editors are among those look back on the decade that was. Rolling Stone has published its list of The 100 Best Albums of the 2010s, including two Nonesuch releases: The Black Keys' Brothers at No. 14, and Randy Newman's Dark Matter at No. 36.

    "Brothers turned into one of their most emotive and cathartic records," writes Rolling Stone's David Browne of The Black Keys' sixth album and third for Nonesuch, "with songs touching on marital discord and hope for the future set to beautifully smudgy R&B, soul, and low-fi funk." The album won four Grammy Awards, including Best Alternative Album. Rolling Stone also named the album track "Everlasting Light" at No. 52 of The 100 Best Songs of the 2010s.

    "American music’s greatest comic ironist released only one LP in the 2010s, but it was a gem," writes Rolling Stone's Jon Dolan of Randy Newman's 2017 Nonesuch album, Dark Matter, "perhaps Newman’s most mordant assessment yet of his fellow man." Newman took home the Grammy Award for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals for the album track "Putin."

    Coincidentally, the album packaging for both Brothers and Dark Matter was designed by Michael Carney, brother of The Black Keys' Patrick Carney.

    Also on the list, at No. 77, is this year's self-titled debut album from The Highwomen, which features Easy Eye Sound / Nonesuch artist Yola contributing vocals on the title track.

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown is out now via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The album, named for and dedicated to Parker's mother, features nine original songs as well as "Gnarciss," an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus," and John Coltrane's "After the Rain." Parker plays the majority of the instruments on the record. "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations," says Pitchfork. "It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music."
