New Music: My Old, Familiar Friend
Brendon Benson has a new album coming out in two weeks, but you can hear the whole thing now on NPR. As co-frontman of the greatest band alive, obviously I'm a fan of Benson, but his solo work is different from the Raconteurs—and depending on your tastes, better. Benson is arguably a stronger songwriter/lyricist than Jack White, and it's his influence that makes the Raconteurs so great as a sum of already excellent parts.
Anyway, check My Old, Familiar Friend. I haven't listened yet...But I'm going to now.
UPDATE: It rocks.
