Album Review: Dead Weather “Sea of Coward”

05/10/2010


The Dead Weather’s new album, Sea of Cowards, set to be released on May 11th (tomorrow), has been in the SFCritic’s rotation thanks to our friends at Filter. The super group of Alison Mosshart (of The Kills and Discount), Jack White (of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs), Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (of The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes), debuted last year to much critical praise and excitement. The group did not fail expectations. This is ROCK! music, not rock music. The constant raging guitar chords, screams from Alison Mosshart and thumping bass on Sea of Cowards definitely gets your blood going, if not albeit agitate you (whether for better or worse). While we continue to listen, we thought to ask your thoughts on their single “Die By The Drop” (featured below) or the album?
