The White Stripes - My Doorbell (7", XL Recordings)
The White Stripes always seem to have something new up their sleeves, and they always manage to suprise. And what a surprise "My Doorbell" is.
Not a bad one, however. The second single taken from Get Behind Me, Satan is a strutting piano soul number that has an immediately nagging melodic hook over Meg's stomp-like percussion. This is not the usual guitar & drum track we're used to from the White Stripes, but can best be described as a piano & drum track. One can only wonder what Jack is referring to when he sings "I'm thinkin' about my doorbell/When ya gonna ring it, when ya gonna ring it"
This is a catchy little track that will immediately get stuck in your head. The single is available on limited edition red vinyl and marbled white vinyl.
