3/4/14 – Jack White – High Ball Stepper – 2014

Jack White has released an instrumental single and video in advance of a new album, Lazaretto, due in June. White’s heavy blues influences  polarises the public, you love it or hate it.

31/3/14 – The War On Drugs – Lost In The Dream – 2014

The War On Drugs or Adam Granduciel with guests, release their/his  third album and almost erase their indie rock status with a reincarnation of accessible eighties rock.
