One of the best albums of the year!
jww
Thus a useful tip for true connoisseurs of rock music would be to shift their gaze from Montreal to Austin and give this great band from the music town a full hearing.

This was a great album, I would recommend it to any music fan and look forward to seeing them in concert.

I was torn where to rate this album. Is it a fun listen? Hell yes. If you were looking for a progression from their last album, "D", some may have a slight letdown. Fits, their quasi first album, contains songs that demands more attention. For a lack of better words, it's all over the place and that's its strength. "D", was a more focused studio effort and in my opinion is their most complete album. Corsicana Lemonade is more of a easily digestible, feel good album. You definitely can tell songs were crafted to create a base in which they can improvise on top of live.

So it's kind of a mixed bag. Hardcore fans that love songs from White Denim that command a rollercoaster of a ride in song-making may not like this album as much. Casual listeners may embrace this album easier and probably is the easiest "entry level" album if you are just getting into them. I take it as a good summertime album that highlights, at times, their amazing musicianship. They really make difficult rhythm and lead structures seem effortless and there's no denying the addition of Austin Jenkins has cemented this band for years to come.

I can't wait to hear them live tonight and see where they can take these songs live. Will report back!

Texan band White Denim have over the past decade been one of America's most startling bands. On previous albums like "Fits" and 2011s wonderful "D" they have shown enough invention to have the patent office working overtime. They draw upon American rock heritage and in their albums can be found echoes of the Mothers of Invention, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Allman Brothers combined with funk and free form jazz. They are professional shape shifters and they inhabit their own unique space. It is often said that you pin a genre on White Denim at your peril. The band have described this new album "Corsican Lemonade" as "their barbecue record". The reason for this is very clear since this is by a country mile the most accessible album they have recorded. In essence this is White Denim moving towards the centre but doing it their way. To stress a point the album is by no means devoid of the trademark skittery syncopated rhythms and odd time signatures. Rock music is never quite straightforward with this band, but the album will appeal to those already immersed in the band ethic and for those approaching for the first time a treat is in store. Take the opener "At night in dreams" full of rumbling bass and lovely melodic guitar runs that positively bubble and burn.

The title track is even better full of jazzy guitar noodling, blues riffing and sounding like Jeff Beck meets the Marshall Tucker Band. Things slow down for the lovely country soul ballad "New Blue feeling" where lead singer/songwriterJames Petralli does a sterling job. Wilco's Jeff Tweedy produced two cuts on Corsicana Lemonade both on the mellow end of the spectrum the Steely Dan sounding "Distant Relatives" and a "A Place to Start." Which is a song Todd Rundgren would be proud of.

A great album that sounds quite retro, fused as it is with jazz tones, and cutting edge modern psychedelic at the same time. This band manage to breathe life into 2013's tired rock corpse. Forget Vampire Weekend/Arcade Fire et al, the future of rock'n'roll belongs to bands like White Denim and The Black Angels.

For me, Denny Dias, original member of Steely Dan, is one of the undersung guitar heroes of rock, and this album pays tribute, especially on track 1, to that Dias sound so central to the Dan's architecture: the opening track cool-kindles with Dias-like flash-boogie strobe-outs and in general creates a kind of bluesy art-rock feeling that lasts nicely through the rest of the album. These are very good-to-excellent songs, played with just enough conviction for the rocker in me and just enough irony for the rest of me. It sort of stakes out a definitive place on some minor 70s jukebox dominated by Spirit and Spooky Tooth, but while it's playing it makes that jukebox feel major indeed.

White Denim is one of the best bands around right now. Do yourself a favor and buy this album, then buy their other albums. I also recommend that you see them live and maybe even buy a tshirt! This album is a nice addition to their catalog. The sound is a bit more polished, but they still rock. I will enjoy this album for years to come.

Singer James Paterlli has described Texas combo White Denim’s album Corsicana Lemonade (2013) as their “barbecue record,” the kind of summer’s evening music that might provide the soundtrack to a neighborhood cookout. Indeed, one could comfortably slot these songs into a playlist alongside Little Feat and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and it’s unlikely that the 50-somethings ranged on the back patio would even bat an eye, unless to ask, “Which Allmans record is this from?”

The shadow of the Allman Brothers looms large over White Denim’s muscular Southern rock, but they’re hardly the band’s only touchstone. If there’s a band in the last forty years that’s incorporated melodic twin guitars, chances are you’ll hear it here. Thin Lizzy? Check. The Doobie Brothers? Check. Stevie Ray Vaughan? Check. Kings of Leon? Check. There are also more unexpected influences on display. For instance, the riff on “Limited by Stature” bears an uncanny resemblance to the orchestral middle of Tomorrow’s 1967 psychedelic classic “Revolution”; the dreamy closer “A Place to Start” slots into a groove somewhere between Timothy B. Schmidt’s work with the Eagles and Steely Dan; and album highlight “New Blue Feeling” brings out the mellotron for some more Beatles-esque (or perhaps more accurately Wings-esque) touches. The band is fond of changing things up on a dime, so which songs sound like whom will depend largely on whether we’re talking about the verse, the chorus, or any of innumerable instrumental bridges.

To the extent that there are lyrics, delivered in Patrelli’s Lowell George drawl, they serve primarily to fill time between these instrumental outbursts. And those outbursts are often captivating, led by heavy drum work and a fuzzy guitar tone lifted straight out of Jeff Beck’s Blow By Blow.
