NEW MUSIC: Black Milk x Jack White – Brain
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Apparently, Jack White is having a lot of fun on his indefinite hiatus from The White Stripes and his divorce. He’s already worked with Stephen Colbert , his formation of Nashville’s Third Man Records, and now he sets his sights on hip-hop production with Black Milk??
I was quite surpised to see the pairing, however I’m glad to see that Couch Sessions favorite Black Milk (check our interview from last year) has paired up with the Grammy award winning producer. The resulting tracks, “Brain,” and “Black Mega,” sound more like a Truth and Soul production and lack White’s grimed-up blues sound. However, the production is solid, with vintage horns and Rhodes keys, while remaining Black’s trademark drum kick. Check it.
