Thickfreakness is the second album by The Black Keys. It is their debut release for the Fat Possum record label. Most of the album was recorded in 14 hours in Patrick Carney's basement on an early 1980s Tascam 388 8-track recorder. The liner notes claim this is Carney's "patented recording technique called 'medium fidelity'". The result is an older sounding sound.
