White dabbles in black magic

Jack White may have dabbled in black magic to evoke the spirits of Hendrix and Morrison on his new album.

Lazaretto is a brilliant throwback to seventies hard rock blues given a contemporary twist of alternative technicolor by the former White Stripes man.

He’s established himself firmly as a solo artist thanks to this sonicly charged follow up to 2012’s Blunderbuss.

Essential tracks on this disc are the title track and the monstrously riffed High Ball Stepper. GC
