Jack White continues to blow my mind

deadweather@ZackTeibloom A “Seven Nation Army” couldn’t hold him back and two bands aren’t enough to satiate the raw rock resplendence that is Jack White III. When his voice started going at the end the tour last fall, he relinquished a little of his singing duties to solo more. I wasn’t complaining. Now he’s pulling a reverse-Grohl and going from the frontman to the drums with his new band, The Dead Weather. So, how do they sound?

They sound like a motha fuggin’ freight train. The band, fronted by Alison Mosshart includes The Raconteurs’ Jack Lawrence on bass, Queens of the Stone Age member Dean Fertita on guitar and Jack White on drums and vocals. It may not be the White Stripes or Raconteurs, but from the first note, this just oozes Jack White. And lord knows I love anything that oozes Jack White.Thumping, head-nodding bass, a simple catchy guitar riff, a break in the music for vocals, echo-y drums, endless fills and guitar effects that make me think “WTF is going on in that head of his, besides pure rock madness? I’ve listened to this song five times in a row and I don’t think I’m going to stop any time soon. Sorry SXSW preparation. It’s Jack time.

Hearing J.W. tear apart a drum kit leaves me wondering why he ever let Meg record with him? Oh, yeah. They used to bang. Respect. All hail the King of Rock!

    True story: my friend saw Jack White walking around in Super Target in Nashville wearing a top hat. That thought alone sends me into a fit of giggles every time.

    Also – That man makes me swoon like nobody’s business.

    I’m totally stoked to hear more from this album.
