Tracks of 2014: Left Of The Dial

Alt.Rock's Greatest Hits

Our look back at the best tracks of the year continues with some alternative alternatives

Jack WhiteTemporary Ground 
On his second solo album, Lazaretto, Jack White largely abandoned straight-ahead riff-rock and instead cooked up a dark, intoxicating melange of gothic folk, funk, Americana and swamp blues. The bewitching Temporary Ground, a duet with fiddle player Lillie Mae Rische, is a striking declaration of freedom on a break-up album heavy with allusions of independence. Happily, it also serves to reclaim the whistling solo from its post-Winds Of Change doldrums.
