Jack White Drops A New Track Called "Battle Cry"

Out of nowhere, Jack White has released a new track called "Battle Cry." What's interesting is the track has zero singing involved, and it's just some wicked guitar playing, and is sort of darker that what we're used to coming from the former lead of The White Stripes.

Third Man Records Detroit Opens Their Vinyl Pressing Plant

For those of you that are record enthusiasts and happen to love some pretty slick music, Third Man Records' pressing plant is now officially open!

Last night, society's who's-who got to get the first peek, before the masses showed up today to get their first glimpse of what THR is going to offer now that they can make records on site. According to a photo posted by fellow photographer Sal Rodriguez, people were camped out last night in hopes of being first in line. 

Some of the cool things in store for your visit are the open windows where you can view the records being made, as well as locally printed vinyl sleeves printed by Essential Screen Printing (ESP), located in Eastern Market.

Keeping things local, Third Man Records released a video of what they hope to accomplish for this pressing plant, including creating 50 livable wage jobs in the area, and helping to revitalize the city. Considering all the local businesses that will benefit from this, especially in the Cass Corridor, it's safe to say that Third Man Records is going to bring a lot of awesome tidings to the area, as well as bring people into the local businesses around the pressing plant like Jolly Pumpkin, Motor City Brewing Works, the already highly in demand Shinola, and City Bird

For the opening this morning, on February 25, there was a line at 10AM that streamed down the alley all the way to where Avalon International Breads is located, and people possessing their Third Man Record coin (a golden ticket of sorts from the THR vault package, I believe) seemed to be getting a first peek before the standard consumers. Boy, does that cement so many jokes about Jack White being Detroit's Willy Wonka.

Check out the then-live video on location, as well as the gallery below of some of today's festivities outside the event. Hopefully when the hype dies down, we can update ACRONYM readers with photos of what's inside, since it was too cold in the D for this reporter to stick around.

If you're into the local Detroit rap scene, you should know Fausto. If you don't, you will now. 

Producing multiple songs, a full album entitled 'Coffee With The Gods', and tons of music videos with directors like Arturo Rivera, Jerry Reid and Diego Cruz, Fausto's been at it for quite a few years. Still picking at flows, and perfecting his rhymes, he's working on a new set of jams for us to take in and create with. 

Check out his most recent song on Spotify called "Invitationonly" and keep an eye out for a music video for the highly anticipated song "White Marble" dropping soon.
