The Parlor Vinyls’ "12 Gun Solute" has White Stripes written all over it. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The dirty, over-driven blues guitar train rolls through a dark tunnel of spring reverb on a slick track of punchy drums. Things get particularly White Stripes-y when frontman Niel Smit starts to sing in a similar vocal vernacular as Jack White himself. And when the guitar solo squeals out White’s signature pitch-shifting high notes, it’s clear: this Brackenfell band is the ghost of The White Stripes - coming to haunt Stripes fans with a "what might have been" if Jack and Meg kept on going.
