Magic Potion is the fourth studio album by blues rock duo The Black Keys. It was released in 2006 and was their first record released on Nonesuch Records, the band's current label. This album marks the first time The Black Keys wrote and composed entirely original material, unlike on previous albums and EPs.
Like the group's first two albums, Magic Potion was recorded in the basement of drummer Patrick Carney. The group's guitarist Dan Auerbach explained the decision:
We like the sound of odd rooms. It's got concrete floors and walls. The upstairs floor is the ceiling. The mixing desk and computer are on top of the tool desk built by the old guy who used to live there. You can hear all of that. Lots of new records have no individuality to the sound. I wanted it to sound like a band in the basement of a house in the Midwest.
