It seems fitting that my first review to be featured in my Oil Slick blog -- a blog about garage rock -- addresses a solo album by one of the genre's most prolific artists, Jack White -- even though he has already removed himself from the landscape his guitar helped carve.
Just days after releasing his debut solo album, Blunderbuss, Jack White made an appearance on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report last night to talk about his new album and perform the track "Freedom at 21." You can watch video of both the performance and interview below.
Just a week ahead of the official release of his debut solo album, Jack White is now streaming Blunderbuss in its entirety via iTunes. Listen to the full thing here, then come back and tell us what you think in the comments.
Jack White's new album, Blunderbuss, will be released April 24, and we've posted previews and videos of two singles, "Sixteen Saltines" and "Love Interruption." But for those of you who wonder what inspires White these days -- let alone what a blunderbuss is -- The New York Times has the answer: death (not the band, of course).
