New York City's Dough Rollers play hard blues tailored for Jack White – he was impressed enough that his label, Third Man Records, released their 2013 single "Little Lily." On the band's new track "Gone Baby Gone," the quartet continue building on that original sound with soul-drenched despair, where vocalist Malcolm Ford laments the loss of a lover alongside guitarist Jack Bryne's cold, bending riffs.

Despite the noticably loose feel that "Gone Baby Gone" evokes, the band worked on many versions until they got it just right. "[It's] like a distant relative to the song we were rehearsing before we went into the studio," the band told Rolling Stone. "It really transformed into something with a totally different character after we sat with it for a while and kept stripping it down and re-layering it. It became almost a whole new song."

The Dough Rollers new EP will be released sometime this spring via on Third Man Records.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
