The Dead Weather Get Braided

The first single by the Dead Weather—the sorta-supergroup that brings together names from the White Stripes, the Kills, the Raconteurs, and Queens of the Stone Age—is “Hang You From The Heavens,” a jagged little blues number that has the Kills’ Allison Mossheart growling to a lover in such a way that it sounds like she wants to devour him alive. (In a good and bad way.) Even with the hair shout-out, I feel like it could be a really great song if it was maybe 45 seconds shorter. Perhaps Jack White wanted to indulge his Lead Singer Syndrome a bit by getting a few drum fills front-and-center? Clip after the jump.
