The Grammy’s are horrible.

Check out Love Interruption, the first glimpse of Jack White’s soon to be released debut album, Blunderbuss. When asked about the highly anticipated release, White said it was “an album I couldn’t have released until now. I’ve put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas.” Blunderbuss is slated to be released April 24 on Third Man Records.

As, I write this,The Lemonheads are touring behind the band’s modern classic It’s a Shame About Ray. This video from the vaults shows the band playing along with Paul Shaffer and several members of the house band. It is hands down one of the best late night performances I’ve seen.
