LP - Jack White - Blunderbuss - 180 Gram
Mr. White Stripes time spent in Nashville has surely rubbed off on him and Blunderbuss is the proof. Heres what The Third Man label had to say about it-If Jack Whites name is on it one thing is certain- The music will be original unpredictable and absorbingly great. Blunderbuss the singer/guitarist/producer/White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather masterminds solo debut doesnt disappoint. Moving away from his hallmark heavy guitars and bluesy overtones White embraces country-minded material punctuated with upright basses pianos clarinets organs and strings.Revolving around themes of a broken relationship yet echoing with the enthusiastic wonder of a performer yanking the listener by the collar and taking them through colorful narrative and musical tales the diverse album was recorded at his own Third Man Studio in Nashville and features 13 new self-penned originals including the slow-burning ballad Love Interruption with singer Ruby Amanfu on accompanying vocals as well as the powerful pure rock n roll second single Sixteen Saltines. White describes Blunderbuss as an album I couldnt have released until now. Ive put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression my own colors on my own canvas.Blunderbuss is named after a muzzle-loading firearm that was a precursor to the shotgun. 180g vinyl pressing housed in a single-pocket Tip-On style old school jacket with 11 x 22 insert and download. Blunderbuss rides along with sophisticated arrangements and well crafted songs of emotional duress. Third Man Records always press up their wares with high quality materials making each release another one to hold onto. Recommended.
