[Listen] Jack White - "Machine Gun Silhouette"

An eager Jack White fan has posted the b-side on the "Love Interruption" single release, which is out today on Third Man Records. Definitely prefer the more upbeat vibe to this song over the A-side, but both are solid nonetheless. As April 23rd crawls its way here for his upcoming debut solo album Blunderbuss we can only expect and hope that ol' Jackie to have some surprises tucked up his sleeves for us along the way.

Make sure you head over to the Third Man Records store to grab a copy of "Love Interruption/Machine Gun Silhouette" for yourself.

[Listen] Bright Eyes and First Aid Kit Cover The White Stripes' "We're Going To Be Friends"

Pitchfork points towards a nice new charity effort that's on the way. The combined efforts of Gift Horse Project and Manimal Vinyl Records have rounded up a group of talented musicians to record some school-friendly versions of song for what they're calling, Cool for School: For the Benefit of the Lunchbox Fund. Today you can sample a taste of these so called school-friendly versions below in the shape of Bright Eyes and First Aid Kit's take on The White Stripes' "We're Going To Be Friends".

Proceeds from sales of the compilation go toward the Lunchbox Fund, which provides meals in South African high schools. Stream it below courtesy of our friends at One Thirty BPM.


[Listen] Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi - "Two Against One" (Feat. Jack White) From The Rome Album

UPDATE: Bringing this back up to the top since the official stream is out.

Finally more music has surfaced from Rome! Yes, just days after Jackie White officially called it quits for The White Stripes, we end the week on a high note with a track featuring Jackie's vocals, "Two Against One", from the upcoming Danger Mouse + Jack White + Norah Jones + Daniele Luppi project. 

Also, how awesome do they all look in this promo shot?!


Rome will be released on May 17th. The song is set to be released as a 7' single on Record Store Day and features the B-Side "Black" featuring Norah Jones. Stay tuned into SKoA as well as and for futher updates.

[Watch] Third Man Records' Rolling Record Store

Oh Jackie, my Jackie. You're always coming up with ways to spread the vinyl loving and I adore you for that. This time Jack White and his Third Man Records team have put their pop up store on wheels and are calling it the Rolling Record Store. For those of us lucky enough to be heading down south to Austin for SXSW, the Rolling Record Store will be making its debut from the 16th-20th. 

No word yet if there will be any special SXSW-only releases like they did for the LA + NYC TMR pop-up stores in the past, but we'll keep you posted of its awesomeness upon arrival to Austin, so keep your eyes peeled here!

[News] The White Stripes Have Officially Broken Up :(

Well, folks. Looks like the cat's finally out of the bag. We all knew this day was probably on its way with all the focus on Third Man Records and such, but no one really thought they would finally pull the plug. 

We are sad to report that The White Stripes are officially no more. 

On a personal note, I commend them for wanting to preserve the Stripes in their current state so we have nothing but happy memories. I'm also very excited to get my hands on more live recordings courtesy of TMR. 

Put on some black, white and red and sip some peppermint schnapps in their honor today.
