First Aid Kit cover Jack White

1 August 2014

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.

Jack White’s “Lazaretto”

Not Johnny Depp. Or Tim Burton. Or Robert Smith.

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.

Instrumental taste of the second Jack White solo album, Lazaretto

3 April 2014

The Man Who Can Do No Musical Wrong has released a tasterĀ 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 White and Jay-Z do a song

22 March 2010

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.
