New Music Tuesday: The Dead Weather, Beastie Boys, The Silent Years,

Jack White's latest rock collaboration, The Dead Weather, release their debut album today, Horehound. I've only had a chance to listen to the album briefly but from what I've heard I'd picking this one up is a safe bet. I'll be happy when we get a new White Stripes album but in the mean time this will hold me over.

You can also pick up the deluxe reissue of the Beastie Boys classic 1994 album Ill Communication. The hip-hop classic has been remastered and contains a bonus disc of b-sides and remixes.

Also out today is The Silent Years' new EP Let Go. Which I reviewed back in May.
