Editorial Reviews

Known for their genre-blurring back catalogue and by radically clashing styles of music at an often bewildering speed, D marks a new chapter in the Austin quartet's story, as they cull influences from prog and psych rock, folk, country and blues to create an updated Americana sound that is undeniably their own.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Denim - A "Southern prog" explosion June 8, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Hailing from Austin Texas White Denim has won the best live act at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival so many times that they promoters ought to shamed into giving them the old trophy and start again. They are an unlikely band with a bespectacled and rather nerdy bass player Steve Terebecki who appears to find it increasingly impossible to keep his shirt on during photos. They equally draw upon a range of musical influences that are utterly eclectic. Their new album "D" sees them build on the wonders of "Fits" classics like "Regina Holding Hands" and `Mirrored and Reverse" and at last deliver that all round great album which they have threatened for so long.

"D" is a set of tracks, which for musical detectives will provide hours of fun. From this album you will detect a dizzying range of classic rock influences with some Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, the Allman Brothers, The Mothers of Invention, Gentle Giant and even Yes thrown into the mix. This is mingled and stirred into a great original stew and ends up in an intoxicating set of songs that the band describe as "Southern Prog". Listen to "Anvil Everything" and you will understand. From that point you should move next to the joint track "Burnished' and "Back at the farm" which starts with an evil riff and builds into the type of jam that Garcia, Lesh and Co could only achieve live with the use of mind expanding substances. The twin guitar attack of James Petralli and Austin Jenkins brew up an old style jam freak out which will be one of the best things to grace your beat up old stereo this year. "River to consider" alternatively starts off with the best flute this side of Ian Anderson that takes a jazzy detour that almost turns into the Bueno Vista Social Club.

4.0 out of 5 stars White Denim Can Boogaloo May 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recommended if you like: Yes, My Morning Jacket, Jethro Tull
In recent years new bands considered progressive rock like the Mars Volta generally have a cold, acute sound that is hard to get behind unless you're just into wacky guitar playing. The progressive rock side of White Denim seems to turn away from the post-punk doodling and bring a more organic and warm sense into what the band has dubbed "Southern Prog".
While bridging the gap between hippie jamming to Southern Rock to Radiohead Spaciness back to the prog rock guitar work of Yes, King Crimson and Frank Zappa, White Denim's newest album D has the swing of 60's San Francisco rock fused with a contemporary rock groove that is both classic and futuristic.
A lot is happening on this album. A lot of influences and rhythms rolling and tumbling through flute flourishes, jazz interludes, running guitar riffs and reverb panned vocals, but all in all it keeps a very down to earth feel. Haunting ballads like "Street Joy" and acoustic country tunes like "Keys" keep everything grounded and intact.
D has made the top 50 of 2011 lists of many magazines and music blogs and White Denim keeps winning the Best Live Act award at Austin's South By Southwest seemingly year after year. Let's hope things keep happening for them.
In a perfect world White Denim would be the "next big thing". With so many influences in their music and surprisingly timeless songcrafting, it's hard for there not to be something for everyone here. Although White Denim may not ultimately bury the Beiber's and Gaga's of the world and single handedly save rock and roll, you'll definitely be hearing more of them in the future.

I kind of have 2 sides to my love of music and musicians. One, I'm totally into prog and classic (late 60s/early 70s) rock. Screaming Hammond organs, odd time signatures, angular guitar lines, lead synths, great rocking vocals, etc are all key ingredients to what I usually find interesting. Two, I have a penchant for folky-poppy-singer-songwriter rock, along the lines of Justin Currie (Del Amitri) or Neil Finn (Crowded House)...really strong vocals and melodies with more minimal arrangements.

White Denim's "D" is for me, almost the best of both worlds. Elements of folky-poppy-singer-songwriter rock combined with progressive rock, and a touch of "jam band" energy, and I am seriously getting into this disc. Having lived in Austin when SXSW wasn't the overblown, bloated, multimedia "extravaganza" it currently is, and Austin music was an awesome thing to behold almost any night of the week (and it might still be...haven't lived there in a while), I'm proud to see the Austin music scene is still the breeding ground for some innovative and energetic bands.

So, if you dig some smart, progressive-ish, folky, touch-of-country rock, then this is WAY worth checking out. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars diverse American/classic/prog/psych rock October 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
3rd release from Austin, Texas band who play indie rock with a strong Americana meets classic
rock twist; where guitars & melodies are fluid, flying sparkle-shots of rolling, rhythmic sound.
You'll hear bits of 70s prog, psychedelic rock, Southern country, jazzy explorations, etc.--all
fused into an eclectic mix of unexpected directions and virtuoso musicianship. Like a combina-
tion of Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Marshall Tucker & Creedence Clearwater Revival together in
a mixing bowl smacked by a quirky spatula. Former members of Parque Torche, Peach Train.
