(Dead Weather tour dates included) Just a quick note here: The Dead Weather, Jack White’s latest band, has released their debut album, Horehound, and it can be streamed in its entirety through iLike. The band features Jack White on drums (and occasional guitar and vocals), Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs and Dean Fertita.
Mosshart’s influence is strong in this band – not just her voice, but her overall style lends a very straight-forward rock feel. “Treat Me Like Your Mother” shows the versatility of the band, where you hear some electronica and even a little rock-hip-hop in there. “Rocking Horse” has a dusty, outlaw feel to it and “3 Birds” has an early 60’s spy movie theme going.
Overall, The Dead Weather are no White Stripes or Raconteurs, but it’s certainly interesting and worth a spin. Jack White is missed on the guitar but I guess we have other options for that. Maybe in his next band he’ll play two guitars. Or maybe the band after that.
