White Denim's Millennial Take On "Classic" Rock

Posted by on Fri, Jan 31, 2014 at 8:06 AM

(Neumos) Since the late '00s, White Denim have developed their sound from a brassy, take-the-corners-wide garage/punk/noise thing to a Y2K-compliant take somewhere in the ballpark of Cream or the Allman Brothers. And while that's not the most exciting evolution under the sun of noise, the Austin four-piece does a fine job of not bumming you out with the change. It doesn't hurt that they've clearly mastered their instruments and songwriting chops in that time. Their latest, Corsicana Lemonade, which features coproduction from Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, bears at least one solid jam in "Pretty Green," and elsewhere, "Street Joy" and "Anvil Everything" off 2011's D are sleeper classics. Further discography exploration recommended. I have not seen them live. With Clear Plastic Masks.

And here's all our recommended music events—tonight, tomorrow, this weekend, and beyond!
