I hate to be the buzzkill here, but, outside of the White Stripes, I have trouble connecting to Jack White's music. I didn't especially dig either of his solo records (though they translate live really well as the killer set of his that I caught at Bonnaroo in 2014 can attest), and I've never been a big fan of The Raconteurs or the Dead Weather. And after the latest Dead Weather track, they haven't really done anything to change my mind.
Jack White's second supergroup with The Kills' Alison Mosshart and Queens of the Stone Age's Dean Fertita is back for the first record in half a decade, and they've dropped a live performance of one of the album's tracks, "I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)" and I'm finding it hard to generate any excitement for this track. White wails on the drum seemingly arhythmically and with too much emphasis on the cymbals. The guitar work is screeching and dissonant. And I never really got into The Kills specifically cause of Alison Mosshart's voice. We'll see how this goes.
