HAUTE COUTUNES Weekly music reviews by Laura Lanktree
The Raconteurs Consoleurs Of The Lonely
Jack White and his all-male side-project, The Raconteurs, have blown back onto the scene without a warning. Literally. The boys announced with one week’s notice that they would be releasing their sophomore album, Consoleurs Of The Lonely. And so, available now for a few weeks, we can all weigh in at once—media and listener alike
I’ll keep my opinion brief: this is what rock ’n roll is meant to sound like. Clearly the method to The Raconteurs’ madness, however, is that you not be swayed by what you read, so in that spirit, have a listen for yourself and feel free to send me your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll happily post some of your reviews next month. Deal?
