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 also… 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’s got a… 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 the… 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 from… 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’s how… More »

Jack White – “Freedom At 21″ Video

Last week, Hype Williams and Jack White posted up the trailer to “Freedom At 21″‘s video. As a general rule, video content that is just over two minutes shouldn’t be granted a trailer, but Hype and White are brands unto themselves, and if anything it was an indication that they were “going for it.” And… More »
