Horehound is the debut from The Dead Weather and is the first record to be recorded and released via Jack White’s Third Man studios and record label in Nashville, TN.
The rock four-piece, consists of celebrated musicians Dean Fertita (Queens Of The Stone Age), “Little” Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes), Alison Mosshart (The Kills) and Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs).
Solidly cemented as the most motivated man in rock, Jack White still seems keen to demonstrate his admirable ability to seemingly do whatever he likes, with whomever he likes. Now, sounding like a bunch of frayed and unwashed circus escapees who have set up their own goat hide tent in the corner of a New Orleans graveyard, The Dead Weather is his latest side project, which came into being during some jam sessions following a Raconteurs tour last year.
Sadly for us, White has made perhaps the first real clanger of his polymath career by recruiting Alison Mosshart of The Kills to take on vocal duties while White himself is relegated to some fairly rudimentary tub thumping. Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age and Jack Lawrence from White's 'other', other band The Raconteurs make up a quartet of suitably roguish looking carney demons.
I Cut Like A Buffalo is a stand out track with a sleazy throbbing riff that's meatier than an Argentinean parrella stand. An out-of-control church organ lurches between the guitar squelches while White, on a rare excursion onto lead vocals, threatens us repeatedly with the question, ''Is that you choking, or are you just joking?''.
The venom of the rest of the tracks, however, are diluted from gaucho bonfire to granola bar by Mosshart. Her thin voice works for the more ethereal creations of the Kills but here, as she morphs into her alter ego 'Baby Ruthless', her vocal abilities struggle to move beyond that of irritating adolescent yelping against a fearsome backdrop of swamp blues. It's a big job, and Mosshart is out of shape for it.
New Pony (from 1978's Street-Legal) is a strange choice for a Dylan cover: a mildly diverting delta funk reworking of Bob's musings about wanting to shoot his horses that doesn't quite convince. What wouldn't we give to have heard White and Lawrence give a more carnivorous Dylan track a la Gotta Serve Somebody a going over here?
Yet even something that comes dangerously close to treading slimy Mississippi water still has enough guttural charisma to entertain, despite some serious flaws. It sounds like they had a blast making it, though listening to this only makes the impatience for a new White Stripes offering even more feverish. --Robert Crossan

But with Horehound White and Mosshart aren't the only ones who contribute as Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs,The Greenhornes) and Dean Fertita (touring member with Queens of the Stone Age and The Raconteurs) also play their part with Lawrence on Bass and Fertita on Guitar, they also both contributed to the songwriting on the album, so its simply not Jack White and friends this is a full band with everybody contributing. White handles Drums for the record as well as sharing vocals with Mosshart on a number of tracks.
Horehound was recorded in two weeks and has its rough edges but is all the better for it, especially in this day of over produced records. Mosshart vocals really suit the sound and can be quite haunting at times, The brillant Rocking Horse being a good example. The stand out tracks are opener 60 Feet Tall, I Cut Like A Buffalo, No Hassle Night and 6 minute album closer Will There Be Enough Water? The single Treat Me Like Your Mother is brillant as White and Mosshart trade vocals, There is also an instrumental track 3 Birds which shows off the fine sound this band has.
Horehound won't sell in White Stripes numbers nor will it get much radio play but the people who do take the chance on it will be glad they did, the hope being Whites name will draw them in.
I'd seen the Kills on TV (Glastonbury) and was impressed with Alison Mosshart's moody & raunchy delivery in the style of PJ Harvey.
This fusion seems so natural - almost like the 4 members had been waiting for this to come together.
The sound takes me back 30-40 years and yet sounds so fresh.
If you can't get to see the band live then get this album - you won't regret the investment.
If you can get to see the band then get the album 1st - it makes the live experience even better!
If you're anything like me you'll be hooked and waiting with baited breath for the new material.
A good mixture of guitars & keyboards, with some excellent vocals & some itchy drumming. More of the same please.
