deadweatherhorehoundThe Dead Weather is a new alternative rock super group with a killer line-up: Jack White (The Raconteurs and The White Stripes), Alison Mosshart (The Kills and Discount), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes). The Dead Weather released their debut album, Horehound, last month - and it's a stunning LP, a must-have for any rock lover's music collection.

Thanks to Subpop Records for sending us a previously unreleased Nirvana cut, titled "Scoff," from the Bleach double-LP reissue, available now, with a limited pressing on white vinyl (white doesn't really fit Nirvana, but OK). Yesterday, Teepee Records sent over a new smoking track, "Strangers," from New York's praised psychedelic-rock band Hopewell, featuring Jason Russo, who was briefly a member of alternative rock icons Mercury Rev. Also, check out new songs, and MySpace pages, from recent and new releases by Langhorne Slim, David Mead, Bamboo Shoots, Reverie Sound Revue, Saintseneca, Fol Chen, Sun Bears, The Real Ones, and The Bygones.

I'm not a huge Jack White fan (admittedly), but he's done an excellent job at repackaging himself as an artist. Being able to play almost identical music in several different iterations of bands (and have people go nuts for it) takes some real savvy.
