Geez, it seems like even just being out of commish for four days the entire internet exploded. There’s so much that has happened over the past couple of days. But one of the big things is Jack White’s other band The Raconteurs quickly announced and then released their sophomore effort Consolers of the Lonely. You can download the album from their official website.
On the first few listens: It’s a fairly solid effort, but it doesn’t really tread new territory for the band and Jack’s fingerprint is all over the album, almost too much. Still, though, it’s a good outting. Nothing to be ashamed about. On the same day they released the album, the band also released the first video for the song.
The video consists of 2500 still photographs from rock photographer Autumn de Wilde assembled into something that comes off like choppy animation. Though we love the video and album and the release strategy, the album did leak early causing web sheriff some consternation (or happiness?) and some websites grief in the process.
