Song of the Day
The Dead Weather - Treat Me Like Your Mother
------------Jack White's got another project, and when I found out about The Dead Weather and the celeb-hipster following it accumulated, I had my reservations. The Rancounters wasn't anything wildly impressive, and while Icky Thump resurrected The White Stripes just in time for festival performances, it was nothing too special.
The Dead Weather has a more reckless, uninhibited outlaw grunge to it, though, and it's sounding more and more appealing with every listen. "Treat Me Like Your Mother" sounds like a segway into the perfect incestuous-undertoned creeper song, but its a renegade bang-bang shoot-em-up barage of intimidating lyrics that's looking to start a bar fight. Get "Treat Me" from The Dead Weather's 2009 album, Horehound.
