    The White Stripes almost broke up before De Stijl!

    The White Stripes almost broke up before De Stijl!

    The recording of the album "De Stijl" by The White Stripes marked a pivotal moment in the band's career and the modern rock music landscape. Released in 2000, this sophomore effort showcased the raw and minimalist sound that would become their signature. Recorded on an 8-track analog tape machine in a small Detroit studio, the album captured the essence of garage rock revivalism with its stripped-down instrumentation and electrifying energy. Jack White's frenetic guitar riffs and primal vocals, combined with Meg White's primal and no-frills drumming, created a sound that was both timeless and innovative. "De Stijl" drew inspiration from various musical genres, from blues to punk, and showcased the band's lyrical and musical prowess. With tracks like "Hello Operator" and "Apple Blossom," the album offered a glimpse into the White Stripes' musical craftsmanship, setting the stage for their meteoric rise in the years to come. It remains a crucial piece of the band's discography and a testament to their enduring influence on the alternative rock scene.

Nostalgia

This takes me back to the days of Comlag recording in Grimm's old basement and talking about some of these great albums. Can't think of two more authentic dudes to hear share their opinions and experiences of these records.

Love this podcast

The Scratch a Track format is genius... I remember how annoying it was when a disc would get scratched, and making a game out of that gives me a while new way to listen to my whole music collection. I appreciate the insights about music production and history, it’s just a fun conversation to listen in on.
