Raconteurs album....

Raconteurs album....

Love the sound of this... very "Nevey" (?) and warm as toast.... almost dark sounding (nice antidote to excessive top-end brashness), oh and I think the music's good too!

Like it too. Particularly "together" and "level". Obvious Led zep and beatles influences. A very warm sound. Lots of bass and deep sub, laid back trebles.

I know it's Jack White and all, but aren't the guitars mixed a little loud?

Interesting comments. I personally was looking very forward to this album when I found out Brendan Benson was working with Jack White. I found it to be a big disappointment. I'm a pretty big Benson fan. This seems a little too heavy on the Jack White influence. Kind of like a White Stripes b-sides collection with better drums.

Yeah, seems that that's what they were going for. I'd say they pulled it off.

Do you know anything about the techniques used? Were the instruments cut in the same room live? Miking techniques?

I too am a big fan, both sonically and songwise.

I caught a show a couple of months ago. If you get a chance - catch this band live ! One of the tightest bands i've ever seen and what a rhythm section..

I caught Brendan Benson live at the Southgate House in Newport (Cincy). I wonder if he has the same bassist in the new touring band. That guy was tight.

Just 8 Coles? Bassdrum too?

I wonder how they split 'em up: Bass/2 Guitars/2 Vocals/Overheads/BD?
