Jack and Brendan

In case you don't know, Jack White and Brendan Benson are in a new band with two of the members of the Greenhornes. It's called The Raconteurs. The have a new record out called Broken Boy Soldiers and it's something to behold. I always describe it as Deep Purple/Led Zepplin meets the Beatles. Which makes total sense, since Jack and Brendan rep both of those camps on thier own records all the time. Together they bring a pretty unique take on rock music and while I think it's great, I also think it's going to be a bit hard for most people to like. It's a bit too heady for most folks. I give the record an 8 so consider that a recommendation to buy it.

Now for some songs:
The Raconteurs- Bane Rendition (this is an instrumental UK b-side courtesy of iguessimfloating blog)
The Raconteurs- Store Bought Bones (my fave on the record)

And in case you don't know him-
Brendan Benson- Tiny Spark

And in case you don't know them-
The Greenhornes- Pattern Skies
