Jack White - Lazaretto

Immediate Integrity

I've not been an avid follower of Jack White, though always respecting his talent, and obviously excited by those early White Stripes days, but this latest release is so much fun with its brash garage rock, country folk rock, and outright pop ditties like Alone In My Home, but it's instrumental High Ball Stepper,  getting plenty of radio airplay, that blows you away, literally at times with its explosions of fuzz. White manages to play it so simply and naturally, especially piano pieces, and the overall effect is immediacy and integrity. Would you call That Black Bat Licorice reggae hip hop al la Zappa? So much fun. Streaming here.
