Music Video/Song Review: White Stripes' Icky Thump

Icky Thump?? Weird name for a song, but a good composition overall. The White Stripes are back, with a new album, tour and a video already. Jack keeps playing guitar and pulls a bass occasionally with an octave divider. Meg seems to contribute to the music more with her percussions too.

They will actually visiting a nearby town at the end of July, when I'll be back from vacation and a paycheck earned. Will post a concert review if I do go see them play.

This song is about immigration, a mockery perhaps. The video may take a minute to load. Not bad overall, I'm a guitar aficionado and always appreciate a song with good leads, solos and bridges.
