Jack White – “High Ball Stepper”

It took seemingly forever for Jack White to release a debut solo album after being a part of countless groups and collaborations, so when I heard he already had a sophomore follow-up album in the works, I was more than ecstatic. His debut, Blunderbuss, was MTIB’s consensus number one album back in 2012 and deservingly…

BADBADNOTGOOD – “Can’t Leave The Night”

Honestly, I don’t know what to say other than, this is an amazing instrumental. Toronto-based, BADBADNOTGOOD isn’t a name I’ve heard before, but you can bet your sweet bippy I’ll be feverishly searching for more of their music… It’ll probably be pretty simple, but I plan on doing it with much fervor. Enjoy the aural…
