Jack White – Solo, and better than ever

Jack White Blunderbuss CoverI’ve been listening to The White Stripes for as long as I can remember, from their self-titled album to Icky Thump, that sweet blues rock screaming out of my busted earbuds. Years later, when The Kills caught my attention, The Dead Weather was an obvious listen. Now Mr. John Anthony Gillis (Jack White) has gone solo for the first time, with his new album Blunderbuss.

When I first heard the news, probably on Facebook, I got really exited. Later, when I heard his single “Love Interuption”, I got overwhelmed. That Indie-Acoustic-Organ-Blues-Sound really spoke to me, and the lack of drums just amplified the rush. The best cure for my midnight depression in late January.

The album was recorded and produced entirely by White through his own record label Third Man Records, and was released April 23, 2012.

One response to “Jack White – Solo, and better than ever”

  1. Hi,

    Nice post, I agree completely that the solo album is much better than anything done by The White Stripes. It’s the best thing Jack has done since Elephant in 2003.
