5.0 out of 5 stars Corsicana Extravaganza 28 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
Initially when I heard Jeff Tweedy (of Wilco) was producing White Denim's next album I was worried. His previous production credits for Mavis Staples and Low had involved simply recording their dry, live sound with very little studio trickery. White Denim's previous albums and EP's had been self produced. Left to themselves they'd become progressively more ambitious in terms of using overdubs, additional musicians and instrumentation in order to create a broader sonic scope. They'd created some very ambitious and engaging records without needing a producer. Regularly their approach in the studio contrasted greatly with their live work which for the most part does away with gimmickry and concentrates almost exclusively on their amazing, peerless musicianship. James Petralli, singer and songwriter in the band had stated in various places online that he wanted a producer involved this time out so that all four members of White Denim could concentrate exclusively on their playing and not have to worry about checking monitor levels or peak meters.

As it turns out their time with Tweedy turned out to be quite limited and he only ended up working on a couple of the new tunes. The band instead chose to finish the record with producer Jim Volentine. The resulting LP, "Corsicana Lemonade", might be one of the most fun records I've ever heard.

What's immediately apparent, even from the first few bars of "At Night in Dreams", is that the record is funky. The tight, interlocking guitar hooks are what make everything gel so magically. The classic rock twin guitar template of Southern 70's bands like The Allman Bros and Lynrd Skynrd has been cranked up 200% or so for the 21st Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Denim - Their Barbecue Record 28 Oct 2013
By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
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." a song that Todd Rundgren would have been proud to write.

5.0 out of 5 stars They've done it again 12 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD
White Denim's last album, 2011's 'D' is my favourite Lp of the last few years. It was inventive, fun, catchy, funky and kicked serious backside.

Thankfully, the boys have evolved nicely on Corsicana Lemonade, which shaves off some of the more idiosyncratic tendencies of 'D' and maintains focus as a stylish blues-jazz-funk-rock album, all played with their usual high standard of musical chops.

Ok, so they don't take many of the weird and wonderful flights of fancy they have in the past, but why repeat yourselves? They've honed their craft and are now the 21st century's answer to Little Feat. And that's high praise.

This is a strange album in that it is full of memorable tunes but as a whole is unmemorable. Each track is like a lft music or K-Tel re-recording of one of your favourite 70's and 80's artists. So we have the sounds of Thin Lizzy, Robert Palmer, T-Rex, Cream, Little Feat and many more beiung performed by tribute acts. The net result is a neutered version that just makes you long to hear the original acts. Even when you turn it up loud it just doesn't rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lemonade for the Gods! 26 July 2014
By pardew
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Take a large portion of early Steely Dan, particularly the guitar sound. Then add a dash of country influence, I'm thinking Allman Brothers. After just fold in some Black Keys and there you have it - White Denim. To explore the origins of this album is not to detract from it in any way. This sounds as fresh as fresh can be and like most great albums, takes 4 or 5 listens until the songs grow into hugely satisfying tunes in your head. Brilliant!!!

Brilliant album! Usually on an album 1 or 2 songs are skipped, not on this album every song is great! Only saw them on Jools Holland, then bought the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but seens to lack something,?
Was impressed with the guitar playing but felt that using 20 notes instead of maybe 6 or 7 spoilt things a bit; clearly influences of Allmans, Little Feat, Steely Dan etc.etc. Read more
