The Difference Between Us by The Dead Weather

Standard

No video for this song. The song ends at 3:37, so no need to keep listening.

The Dead Weather wake the dead in a good way with this hard-core tune. This is off their second album, Sea of Cowards.

This band is made up of musicians from other popular bands:  Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Jack White (on drums) of The RaconteursDean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age, and Jack Lawrence of City and Colour. They’re set to release a new album some time this year. I’m not a big fan of the rest of their stuff, but this song really does kick-ass.

Haunt You by The Pack A.D.

Standard

A nice live video from inside a studio.

The Pack A.D. hailing from Vancouver, seem a lot more angsty than most people from BC normally are, and that’s a good thing. This song if off their latest album, Unpersons.

This Canadian female duo have taken a page out of The White Stripes handbook for drums and guitar simplicity, with an edge. They’ve released 4 albums thus far, with songs ranging from slow meandering angry sadness, to just plain loud and angry. From the looks of this video, they’d probably be a great band to see live, especially since lead singer, Becky Black, is extremely easy on the eyes. And with her loud distorted guitar sound and awesome vocals, I think I have a new stage crush.
