New Music | Jack White – Lazaretto

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYF0LtfUvJs[/youtube] [J]ack White has just released the title track and first official single from his his forthcoming album, Lazaretto, out June 10th on Third Man Records/Columbia. With creating the ‘worlds fastest record’ this past Saturday for Record Store Day, readying the release of his new album, and planning the subsequent tour (still no Boston stop announced dangit!), it seems Mr. White is keeping himself rather busy…which is not unusual at all for a man who also happens to be in two other bands. Enjoy the new single, spoiler alert… I dig it!

Video | Jack White – High Ball Stepper

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRbnAxrS3EM[/youtube] [B]listering new instrumental track from Jack White’s forthcoming album, Lazaretto, out June 10th on Third Man Records. I admit it, I’m a Jack White fan! I celebrate the guy’s entire collection! For my money it doesn’t get any better than when he sings “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.” You better believe I will post more on the new album as the release date draws near. Until then enjoy the paint pulsing sounds of Jack White’s guitar from the first track to be released from Lazaretto titled “High Ball Stepper.”

Best Records of 2012 | 25 – 21

25. Jack White – Blunderbuss – Jack White is back with his first solo record since “the breakup” and he’s back to true form in only the way that he can be. Its a freaked out, rocked out, album with a funky new band. The record is totally solid, gritty, twangy and a million other -y’s you can add. It’s Jack White, need I say more? Listen: Jack White – Sixteen Saltines| Buy: Blunderbuss 24. Field Report – Field Report – Born of a pedigree that we’ve talked about ad nauseum (Bon Iver) Chris Porterfield released a record full of…

2012 | Jon’s Top Albums of the Year

The following appear in no specific order. Todd Snider – Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables [S]ometimes I wonder how many songs exist that I’d love if I ever just got the chance to hear. This is certainly what drives people to blog about music. “People need to hear Todd Snider.” But when I say “people,” I don’t mean blog readers. I mean that Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables should be played over loudspeakers at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial because this is what recession music sounds like. (Instead, pseudo-religious, British faux-Americana rules the charts. Where’s the justice?) In New…

2012 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

1. Father John Misty – Fear Fun [C]roce, Skynard, Nilsson, Fogerty and Morrison had a baby and named it Father John Misty. Right out of the gate this album rocketed to the top of my most listened to list. Hooked in by “Well You Can Do It Without Me”‘s Nilsson-like flavor and then drawn into the much deeper and more complicated workings of stunners such as “Funtimes in Babylon”, “Only Son of the Ladies Man”, and… fuck it, the whole album is fantastic. 2. The Lumineers – The Lumineers [I]t says a lot about the state of the musical union…

Live Review | Jack White at the Agganis Arena

Photos by Boston Concert Photography [O]n Friday, September 28th Jack White paid a visit to Boston to promote his solo album Blunderbuss and remind everyone at the show exactly who is in charge. The last time Jack was in our neck of the woods he was behind the drums with his last super-group side project, The Dead Weather, back in the summer of 2009. When I asked fans around the arena if they had been to that show most of them said no. When asked why did they miss a chance to see Jack White in Boston the most common…

Review | Jack White – Blunderbuss

words by Ryan Doyon Ok sure, I am still saddened by the demise of The White Stripes. After an amazing 14 year run which produced 6 highly praised studio albums, giving us countless fuzzy guitar infused blues rock, they called it quits in 2011 leaving fans everywhere crushed. Jack White has added his musical one-two punch to many a band over the years but nothing came close to the energy that the Stripes produced in their time together. Almost a year to the date Jack White releases his first solo album, “Blunderbuss.” And it appears he has returned to form.…
