Salute Your Solution

Anyone who’s talked to me for more than five minutes knows I absolutely worship Jack White. I’ve loved him since White Blood Cells, and I’ll continue to purchase everything he releases until one of us dies. The latest Raconteurs album, Consolers of the Lonely, is no exception. Imagine if Iggy Pop, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Muddy Waters, and The Beatles were forced into a blender, along with Jack White’s blues sensibilities and Brendan Benson’s 90s-pop aesthetic, and the result were dumped all over your head. Every album Jack releases, whether it’s with the White Stripes or the Raconteurs, is building and improving upon what he did previously. This is a great example of that. The arrangements are increasingly complex, but rarely overwhelming. What I am saying here is that the album is SO GOOD AND YOU SHOULD BUY IT NOW.

Anyway, the reason I’m really posting is just to show you the video for the new single, Salute Your Solution. It’s a cool stop-motion style performance video- a simple concept, but really nicely executed. And even though Jack White’s new haircut kind of makes him look like and old lesbian, he’s still got it going on.

    This video is like a cross between the latest Albert Hammond Jr. steenbeck video and the White Stripes/Gondry pixillation

    Jack White, ever an addition to my “I’m not gay, but man if I was…” list.

    This album goes all the way from simplistic punk to progressive to old time country storytelling.
