[new]: Jack White – Sixteen Saltines

By Will Oliver, March 14th 2012 — with 1 comment

“Sixteen Saltines” is off of Jack White’s debut solo album Blunderbuss. He debuted the song during this weekend’s SNL performance, and now he’s currently streaming it over at his site. I’ve embedded it below for your convenient listening pleasure.

Funky blues-inspired riffs and Jack’s signature vocals will do well to comfort us in this post-apocalyptic White Stripes era.

If you like what you hear, the single’s 7″ is up for pre-order. The b-side is a cover of U2’s “Love Is Blindness”. The single is due on March 20, while Blunderbuss is due April 24 on Third Man Records/Columbia.

Last weekend Jack White graced the stages of SNL with his always confident stage presence. He performed “Love Interuption”, the lead single from his debut album Blunderbuss, as well as “Sixteen Saltines”. He performed the former with an all-girls band, and an all-boys band for the latter.

Catch both performances below.

Jack White Announces Solo Album // Hear First Single “Love Interruption” Now

By Will Oliver, January 30th 2012 — with 1 comment

Jack White has announced his debut album Blunderbuss is on the way. The LP will be released April 24 on Third Man Records/Columbia. White produced the album and recorded it at his own Thrid Man Studios in Nashville.

“Love Interruption” is the first single from the album. It’s a solomn folksly affair with duel vocals (apparently) from Nashville artist Ruby Amanfu. It’s got that feel off The White Stripes slower acoustic album cuts. It’s available to stream now, and up for pre-order on vinyl, where it’s due out on February 7 via Third Man Recordds. It comes with exclusive b-side “Machine Gun Silhouette”.

Listen to the song below, and check out a quote from Jack about

“(Blunderbuss is) an album I couldn’t have released until now. I’ve put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas.”

We all knew it was a matter of time until we got a solo album from Jack. With The White Stripes out of the picture, and no new news about The Raconteurs/The Dead Weather, now seems like a perfect opportunity.

[listen] Black Milk – Brain // Royal Mega (Feat. Jack White)

By Will Oliver, July 12th 2011 — with 2 comments

Imagine if Jack White put together a jazz fusion of The Dead Weather/Black Keys along with the smooth touch of Detroit MC Black Milk. Well that’s exactly what you get on “Brain” and “Royal Mega”, two new songs from Black Milk that Jack White co-produced.  Jack played guitar on “Brain” and drums on “Royal Mega”.

Both songs are funky fresh and sure to please fans across the board. It drops tomorrow on a 7″ record via Jack’s Third Man Records. Take a listen to both songs below thanks to SKOA:

At SXSW Jack White played a two song acoustic set in a parking lot. It was to promote the Third Man Records Rolling Record Store (which is pretty neat). He played stellar performances of Buddy Holly’s “Not Fade Away” and The White Stripes classic, “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground”. He also announced that Seasick Steve (remember him?) signed a 1 album deal with his label. Then Steve himself performed a few tunes. Awesome stuff.

Jack White’s New Band: The Dead Weather

By Will Oliver, March 11th 2009 — with 4 comments

Jack White likes to keep busy. Being in The White Stripes and Raconteurs isn’t enough for the rock star. Now he has joined a new band with Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Jack Lawrence from The Raconteurs, and Dean Fertita who has helped with both Queens of the Stone Age and The Raconteurs. Woah that is pretty cool. Jack is singing but he put his guitar duties on hold. Jack White is on the drums for The Dead Weathers. That is pretty damn cool.

Their debut album “Horehound” is expected to see a release in June. Below I got the bands first single “Hang You From The Heavens” and it’s b-side “Are Friends Electric?” (Gary Numan Cover) for you to hear.

“Hang you Up” is a southern heavy rocker with vocals from both Jack and Alison. The guitars are flying full force. It did remind me a bit of The Raconteurs playing style. The Numan cover is right up there too. God does Jack White do anything that doesn’t kick ass?

cheers to culture bully for the mp3’s
