Jack White

Blunderbuss

(Third Man/Columbia)

Sounds Like: An excellent step out on his own after more than a decade of nonsolo projects; this record is full of blues, brutal truths, stellar guitar work and production.

Free Association: We knew he had it in him; it’s just nice to finally have it in our hands.

For Fans Of: Ted Leo, Jimmy Page + Bob Dylan (his hero), the Clash x Spoon, Memphis.

 

Daughn Gibson

All Hell

(White Denim)

Sounds Like: A fascinating solo LP that blends crooner-flavored country noir and glitchy electronic production from the drummer of former PA stoner metal outfit Pearls & Brass.

Free Association: Everyone’s saying Johnny Cash meets James Blake—kinda true.

For Fans Of: Matthew Dear x Roy Orbison/Elvis/Morrissey, truckers taking their tops off.

 

Death Grips

Money Store

(Epic)

Sounds Like: The Sacramento, Calif., trio of drummer/robot/human metronome Zach Hill, keys man Andy Morin and rapper/shouter Stefan Burnett delivers exciting, crass and mind-blowing punk-flavored hip-hop.

Free Association: Executing rap-rock’s potential in ways Limp Bizkit never even dreamed.
