Album Oriented 90: The Streets and The White Stripes

We close out the 90s with two idiosyncratic artists from the aughts that use “garage” to describe their music in very different ways. Daniel presents A Grand Don’t Come for Free, the 2004 sophomore release from British hip-hop garage act The Streets. (That’s the New Musical Express #90 pick in case you couldn’t tell.) Erich offers thoughts on Entertainment Weekly’s #90: Jack and Meg White, aka garage rockers The White Stripes, specifically their 2001 third LP, White Blood Cells. Daniel’s Mid-Year Kicker Pick stumps Erich–which means, for starters, that it isn’t Brian Eno-related.
