tonight in austin
You know how we always do a terrible job of describing exactly why White Denim is our favorite band in the world right now? Well, the Austinist agrees that the band is basically impossible to pigeonhole, which is part of why they're so badass. Still, our girl Paige manages to sort of nail exactly what we love about them, complete with references to the Kinks, the Yardbirds, this, and Captain Beefheart. Anyway, our favorite part of the article was this line:
"When watching White Denim play, it might be tempting to call them garage rock or post-punk or something like that, and it's partially true because of the spirit of the whole thing, but those classifications intimate a certain simplicity which patronizes the complexity of some of the compositions..."
That's what we meant to say. I guess it wasn't so hard after all. Not at all coincidentally, White Denim plays tonight at Emo's in Austin. Buy their amazing Let's Talk About It EP at iTunes.
