You can stream some songs off the site.

The line up is Jack White, Brendan Benson, Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence.

So first impressions, guys?

I definitely want to catch them on tour.

So the album has been leaked, Broken Boy Soldiers, definetly catchy at times, but it is lacking overall i think. I would've been happy if they just released "Steady As She Goes"

I like this a lot so far. I'm on track five. It's like a cool psychedelic sort of album.




I dig.

ive just listened to the whole album. it was good. ive never really liked white stripes music but ive always liked jack's voice. and i think he really took it up a level in this band. i like it. just like it.

has anyone seen the video for steady as she goes. it was kinda boring
(i fucking hate that guy in the beginning of this video)

steady as she goes

Steady As She Goes and Broken Boy Soldier are about the only things that save this album for me.

After quite a few listens I'm pretty convinced it's pretty meh.

Steady As She Goes is a solid first single, I like the feel
of this band and am happy to see Jack doing other things
and getting more creative.
