Win Tickets To See The Boxer Rebellion At MHOW On April 27

Jack White Releases Dark, Disturbing "Sixteen Saltines" Video

Jack White's dark, dystopian video for "Sixteen Saltines," off of his upcoming solo debut Blunderbuss, has premiered on VEVO and on White's own website. The video for the second single from the album, which is due out April 24 on Third Man Records/Columbia, is set in an urban landscape governed by feral children and teenagers who spew blue liquids, run wild with dogs and cause general mayhem. White, who appears at the very end of the clip, directed by AG Rojas, is thrust into a gasoline-soaked predicament, seemingly destined for an unhappy ending.

Yellow Ostrich: TAS In Session

An evolution from laptop-in-bedroom dabbling to full-fledged, fast-rising band seems to be the biographical trajectory of every other fledgling group these days, but for Yellow Ostrich frontman Alex Schaaf, the transition from solo act to trio appeared to be an effortless one. Yellow Ostrich's sophomore release, Strange Land, is a confident leap from loops to an aggressive live sound. The band embarks on a tour on April 7 — they play New York's Mercury Lounge on April 8 with TEEN — and Schaaf, Tapper and Natchez recently came in for a iive session which airs on TAS on 91.5 WNYE this Friday, April 6, at 11 a.m. EDT, streaming on The Alternate Side.
