White Denim Play LOS ANGELES On 4.1 At Spaceland (Club NME) & Announce SXSW Dates

Rolling Stone: Fricke’s Picks
“Like Ike and Tina Turner….. White Denim never do anything nice and easy.
The bands chopped up punk delirium is effortless sorcery, evoking Talking
Heads’ dancing-bones rock, the dervish thrash of the Minutemen and the
Strokes’ pneumatic-guitar pop…White Denim is not simple work, but
everything you get is nice and rough.”- David Fricke

NY Times:
“The Austin trio that can sound like the Ventures transplanted to Texas,
psychedelic catapulted toward math-rock, ZZ Top on a caffeine binge or the
early Talking Heads with a chip on their shoulder. White Denim should the the
proverbial hard act to follow.”


ess LOVE for EXPOSION!

 Pitchfork 7.8

"Exposion isn't so easily characterized--and the group comes off as more

versatile, more than DIY Nuggets throwbacks....a band this chaotic and

unpredictable probably designed those tracks to twist and turn that way in

the first place..."

New York Times:

"...the album accurately captures a stagebound aesthetic that's messy by

design and constitutionally wary of settling into a single groove for too

long... the group gives the canny impression of knowing more than it lets

on."

 Blender:

 "This Austin trio makes a uniquely wigged-out noise, like genuine Lone Star

 lone wolves, mixing psychedelic boogie and spastic punk (á la '80s titans the

 Minutemen) into shifty, sharp songs that whirl by like tornados with ADD.."



 Rolling Stone:

 "While 'All You Really Have to Do' and 'Shake Shake Shake' support that rep,

their debut full-length shows a more versatile outfit..."

 

Popmatters:

 "The pop sensibility behind all this sprawling, sweaty R&B, mixed with a

 heavy dose of the roadrunner speed and snarl of garage punk, is what drives

the haphazard beauty of this album.."



 NY Times on ACL show:

 "White Denim, an Austin three-piece with a slashing, raucous, elastic

 rapport, played on a secondary stage to a relatively sparse crowd it was up

 against the Raconteurs and Gnarls Barkley  but made its point in a way that

 felt both focused and unhinged. "Don't Look That Way at It," from the band's

forthcoming full-length debut album, featured an epic roil of pounding toms,

 wordless vocals and a surprising, squiggly guitar riff."
