Triple j‘s Like a Version is always a must-listen on my way into work on a Friday morning. Today’s was an excellent amalgam of two of my favourite acts: First Aid Kit covering Jack White’s “Love Interruption”.
If you’re a Tenacious D fan, watch from the start (a bit of a Jack Black/Jack White contrast). Otherwise, the serious stuff starts from about 1:00.
You can see their harmonious original song, “My Silver Lining”, here.
Here’s the next track from Jack White‘s second solo album, the titular “Lazaretto”.
This sounds like bluesy Rage Against The Machine. That’s promising.
The Man Who Can Do No Musical Wrong has released a taster from his second solo album. Jack White’s Lazaretto will come out in June.
“High Ball Stepper” is a weird choice: a Zeppelinesque slab of crunching guitar instrumentals. Every second of it thrills me.
Jack claims he’s recorded something “incredible” and “unbelievable” with Jay-Z. I don’t doubt that something these two heavyweights come up with could be cool. When White collaborated with Alicia Keys they gave us the best Bond theme for a few decades.
