Dead WeatherJack White returns this week with Horehound from yet another band on his resume, The Dead Weather (where he is joined by The Kills' Alison Mosshart). Promotions for this album have been running high with a Third Man Records store even opening in NYC for two days, and a 'takeover' of online radio station WOXY by the band. You can listen to their one hour set from Monday HERE.

From the discs I have already heard, I can also recommend Baby Teeth's Hustle Beach, The Most Serene Republic's Expanding Universe, and New Roman Times: On The Sleeve.

Remastered albums from Neil Young (After the Gold Rush, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Harvest (remastered), Neil Young) and the Rolling Stones (A Bigger Bang (remastered), Bridges to Babylon, Dirty Work, Steel Wheels, Voodoo Lounge) highlight the week's reissues, along with a remastered edition of the Beastie Boys' Ill Communication (complete with bonus disc).

What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list? Have I left any interesting releases off the list?

"A Bigger Bang" has gotten the remaster treatment already?! Didn't that come out, like, two years ago?

The Dead Weather's 'Horehound' = Largehearted Boy's Overhyped CD Release This Week

Anon 11:16 PM = Good-for-nothing with too much time oh his hands

11:28 = lonely, sad, Target-shopping, suburban-dwelling teenager who will buy any old garbage that Jack White puts out.

Summer Cats! Woo!

so sick of hearing about the dead weather no offense.

Meanwhile, you know they're playing jack white;s stupid temp record store right?

Don't forget to pick up the RX BANDITS new release MANDALA as well ... hard work + non major label = AMAZING album.

that equation might not be true for all albums but this really is a work of BEAUTY

Ty Segall, Blues Control, Care Bears on Fire

any of those releases any good?

Posted by Anonymous | July 14, 2009 3:58 AM

Blues Control is perfect.

The Ill communication disc 2 is pretty damn good although i feel like an old man listening to it. i agree dead weather is pretty bad. The Best thing i heard this week was Trippin' Balls single by Bumpin' Tacos.

I will be purchasing the new Clutch today.

Meh. Can we have an album release do-over for this week?

Posted by Anonymous | July 14, 2009 9:29 AM

i appreciate that the first time this guy ever shouts out hip hop since starting this column its for an old album done by white boys. classic black music hating largehearted boy.

Hey guys! Great news! I heard BV is gunna be a Hip-Hop Blog soon!!

If the dead weather would've spent half of the time they've spent on promotion on actually writing good songs and recording a decent album they may have had something worth promoting. The new album is half-assed and not worthy of a pop-up store. Their new video sucks too. All that video premier hype just to see him and that poser chick shooting guns on the outskirts of the suburbs... wtf? Jack White needs to take his fat ass and bloated ego back to detroit and make a decent record.

brooklyn vegan covers plenty of music made by black people, although i agree, not much hip hop. which is fine. but this guy refuses to ever shout out any music that a black perosn makes and when he does one time give props to hip hop its for a white group? i'm sorry, what started out as a joke is getting kind of weird.

i mean, giving props to the stones "a bigger bang" reissue but not the nina simone or miles davis reissues (or even santana!) which are far superior. come on, what is going on here?

Posted by Anonymous | July 15, 2009 2:55 PM

shout-out? give props?

The word is "mention", sweetheart.

The White Stripes, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, they are all good projects White has been involved in. Alison is also great in both The Kills and The Dead Weather. She has probably become best known after "Sour cherry" which featured the soundtrack of the "Gossip Girl" series.
