Walking With A Ghost

The White Stripes have a new 6 track EP out called Walking With A Ghost. It's one new recording, the title track Walking With A Ghost (which is a cover of a Tegan and Sara tune) and then 5 live cuts - all songs from previous records. I don't know the original (I think I've only ever heard one Tegan and Sara song and it didn't move me), but several reviews have said that it's a pretty faithful rendition. It seems to me that it fits what the White Stripes do well - big riff, big drums, catchy chorus, trippy guitars. it's all there. The live tracks are also what you'd expect - stripped down and raw. Not an essential recording, but still kind of interesting.
