Yet another Jack White side project, and yet another solid song comes out of it.
“Hang You From The Heavens” is your typical, fuzzed-out, jammin’ Jack White, and his great new bandmates help him out with this song. Alison Mosshart of the Kills, is the lead singer; Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age plays guitar; and Jack Lawrence, from Mr. Whiteâ€™s other band, the Raconteurs, is the bassist. White actually plays the drums with The Dead Weather, but he’s clearly helped out Mosshart with the vocals, which sound very Stripes-y…almost too much so.
The song is a good one, but nothing special and tiring towards the end. I quite enjoy it, but it’s not nearly as catchy as any of The White Stripes’ greatest tunes, and it sounds a little too much like more of the same from White and friends.
What do you guys think of “Hang You From The Heavens,’ and does this new band excite you?
