The Dead Weather are Reborn on Dodge and Burn

Prev2 of 4Next

With Alison Mosshart of The Kills on lead vocals, Jack White on drums, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age on guitar, and Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs on bass, The Dead Weather combines a cast of talents and garners fans from all corners of the rock world. Dodge and Burn, like The Dead Weather’s previous two albums, is obviously made by veteran players, yet as a result, it’s hard not to compare it to the members’ previous endeavors – there’s Mosshart’s haunting, breathy, and acidic voice that defines The Kills, and there’s Jack White’s signature, crystal-clear guitar riff that has been getting stuck in our heads since The White Stripes’ White Blood Cells. The album opener “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” echoes the blues rock influences on Jack White’s most recent solo album Lazaretto and, though songs like “Open Up,” “Buzzkill(er),” and “Cop and Go” are bold, angry, and energizing, they don’t chart any new territory for the supergroup.
