Jack White Named Ambassador Of Record Store Day 2013

Yesterday, I was walking through the Brooklyn neighborhood to which I moved not three weeks ago, when I fell upon an indie video store that had just that day announced a going-out-of-business clearance sale.

The 10 Least Boring Moments From The 2013 Grammys

About two thirds of the way through last night's endless Grammy ceremony, Justin Timberlake ambled onstage for the second time, this time to flank Recording Academy CEO and inveterate pirate-scolder Neil Portnoy. Timberlake asked a question: "Best Grammys ever?" Then he answered himself: "Best Grammys ever." Well, no, Justin. The idea of a "best" Grammys,… More »

Watch Frank Ocean, Jack White, Miguel Perform At The Grammys

The Grammys! We spent altogether too much of last night watching and talking about them, and now it's time to pick through the refuse for the gems. Not too surprisingly, two of the best performances came from the recent wave of personal, psychedelic R&B singer-songwriters. Frank Ocean may have lost in every single major… More »

Gibby Haynes And Jack White – “Paul’s Not Home” (Adrenalin O.D. Cover)

There was a lively conversation in the m b v comments yesterday regarding the subject of taking drugs to enhance (or not) one's experience listening to music.

Watch Jack White Play Austin City Limits

I'm having special levels of good feeling toward Jack White right now, after watching my Baltimore Ravens advance in the playoffs in Ray Lewis's last-ever home game. (Ravens fans like to chant the "Seven Nation Army" riff after every big play. Because we're awesome.) And it's pretty fortuitous that White appeared on the PBS live-music… More »

Watch Jack White’s Winter In Portlandia Cameo

On Portlandia's special holiday episode, there was a sketch in which Fred Armisen played a nervous, vintage-gear-obsessed studio engineer who uses the phrase Pet Sounds over and over, like a tourettic tic. To guys like that, Jack White must be some sort of glowing deity, so that's the form he took when he showed up. More »

Watch Jack White Play Conan

Jack White and Conan O'Brien have a long history together. During the peak of their meteoric rise, the White Stripes played a week-long residency at Late Night With Conan O'Brien. Then, Conan showed up in the Stripes' video for "The Denial Twist," in which Michel Gondry recreated a fantastical version of that residency. (I'm… More »

MOJO‘s Top 20 Albums Of 2012

The metal rag Decibel was the first prominent publication to drop a year-end best-albums list, but MOJO, that boomer-friendliest of all the major UK rock magazines, isn't far behind. Given the magazine's classic-rock proclivities, it's probably not a shock that they named Jack White's pretty-great Blunderbuss as their #1 pick for 2012; it'… More »

Check Out The Third Man Records Novelty Lounge

Jack White's Third Man Records Nashville headquarters now has a new feature: A tourist-attraction sort of deal called the Novelty Lounge. The room is filled with coin-operated gadgets like a video jukebox and a machine that makes wax models of guitars, and all of them run exclusively on Third Man tokens. And to celebrate… More »

Jack White – “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” (Live At Third Man Records)

Jack White has a history of releasing music and merch in cool and unusual ways; his new "Vault Package 14" may not be among his 10 weirdest, but it's still pretty neat: It includes a 7" of demos for "Freedom At 21," "Love Interruption," and "Hypocritical Kiss"; Shark Infested Soda Fountain, a photo book… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I spent a pretty good chunk of the week in transit to or from New York, or doing New York things while I was in New York, so I didn't see a lot of this weeks' videos before the massive video-watching binge I went on this morning. And I have to say: Lots of good… More »

Jack White – “I’m Shakin'” Video

Today, Jack White dropped the video for "I'm Shakin'," the fired-up Little Willie John video that appeared on his still-great album Blunderbuss. White's been famously touring with two bands lately, one all-male and one all-female. And in the video, two different Whites and both of his bands face off against each other, soundclash-style. Here'… More »
