Jack and White: Gemini EP

It only takes one look at the press surrounding Jack and White to discover that most people are approaching this project through the lens of Brooke White and her experience with American Idol. I, however, approach this project through checking up on what Jack Matranga has been up to since the dissolution of Self Against City. It doesn't really matter what brings you to this project as much as it matters that you do take time to check it out. In listening to this EP you will immediately grasp the delicious jangly feel of the 70's "California Sound". There is something deliberately peculiar about the dynamic between these two musicians that is strongly reminiscent of the connection between Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. It's that odd sense through their music that they are finishing each other's sentences and thoughts. Really the only complaint would be a heartfelt desire to see Jack take the lead occasionally.

Track Listing:
Double Trouble
Inside Outside
Telephone Games
Smoke and Mirrors
