White Denim are a funny old band. Their five-album discography is a mish-mash of self-released, sometimes UK only, sometimes US only releases all studded with the occasional mp3 only release and a plethora of EP action thrown in for good measure.
The band’s 2005 conception came about in similarly patchwork-fashion. A conglomeration of two bands that started as a four (now a three), White Denim make Southern rock delivered with a wink. Typically for the band, this hasn’t always been the case. Five full-length LPs give White Denim a lot of material to work with. First release ‘Let’s Talk About It’ in 2007 is very much a garage rock record, and since then they have become famed for their unusual song structures and breadth of sound.
Most recent effort, album ‘Corsicana Lemonade’, is a Wilco-produced Southern rock and rolling stunner of a record. Rollicking rhythms and swift, sharp as you like riffs show that White Denim are masters of any sound they turn their hands to. Artists as talented as this always promise a fantastic live show, and ‘Corsicana Lemonade’ promises to make a particularly special live show.
