Jack White records, releases Dex Romweber Duo 7"

Posted by on Thu, May 7, 2009 at 6:27 PM

Dexter and Sara Romweber stopped by Jack White's home studio in Nashville, Tenn., last week to record. Along with engineer Vance Powell, White lent his talents to the sessions by producing, playing guitar, saw, bass and singing. The two tracks cut over the two-day session—Geeshie Wiley's great "Last Kind Word Blues" and Dex's own "The Wind Did Move"—will be released through White's label, Third Man, later this month. Third Man, a vinyl label, currently has one release to its name: "Hang You From the Heavens," a seven-inch slab by White's new band, The Dead Weather.

"It feels good. I can go to my grave and at least know I accomplished something," Romweber told Nashville's Metromix over his long-purported influence over The White Stripe. "Nothing gigantic. But still, it’s something. It’s touching." Complete track details after the jump."
