I’m on a big big Jack White buzz at the moment. For the first time in a while I’ve really got a good stretch of listening to White Stripes/ Raconteurs material back to back, etc. All brought on of course by delving into The Dead Weather debut album, ‘Horehound’. It’s not amazing stuff but there’s a handful of good tunes there and you just got to admire the guy’s playing and production chops. The players on The Dead Weather LP are also something else.
Here is a link to a review of The Dead Weather – ‘Horehound’ which I did for State.
Below is a great video by Jonathan Glazer for one of the better tracks. Glazer, for those who don’t know, is a great music video director who has worked with Radiohead, Blur and Massive Attack amongst others. I’ve also included three of my favourite videos by him.
