Although this won't be everyone's cuppa, Fits fizzes along touching many different bases along the way. Garage Rock is a cliche that doesn't do any justice to these guys. The sheer imagination and energy shown through the album keeps you smiling longer than the 30 odd minutes it lasts for.
An initial listen may seem chaotic and ramshackle, but on repeated listens this albums shows many gems.
Like the Minutemen playing Hendrix tracks for the new Millennia, White Denim take the punk ethos that anything goes and melds it with fine musicianship. Highly Recommended (and check them out live if you can).

Mad as a March Hare and nothing too wrong with that of course.
We all need a little madness once in a while to keep us on our toes.

White Denim certainly provide more than a little on their new album 'Fits'.
Eclectic, as a description, doesn't quite do this collection of 12 pieces justice.

There is a raw coherence in this music.

Messrs Petralli (Vocals/Guitar), Terebeki (Bass) and Block (Drums) cook
up a rich rhythmic stew which for the most part follows its own rules.

Echoes of Hendrix, Beefheart and Zappa permeate the intra-cellular
structure of these fine compositions. Head music. Heart music too.

There is so much good energy bursting out of these boys that the
recording can barely contain it. Heck its all good !

'All Consolation' with its disembodied vocals and cataclysmic ensemble playing
will put cracks in your ceiling if played at the intended (ie : LOUD) volume.

'Say What You Want' is a riot. The central riff and Mr Petralli's rasping
performance transport us back to a kind of late sixties hippie heaven,
complete with sitar-like guitar interlude. I almost cried with nostalgic joy!

The blistering scat of 'El Hard Attack DCWYW' is as good a piece of rock
overload as you are likely to hear this year.

The whole band performs like a dream team in 'I Start To Run'.
It feels like it could ride off the rails at any moment but skill, trust and
chemistry keep the raucous proceedings travelling in a straight line.

Things lighten up a little with 'Paint Yourself'. The delightful shuffling beat and
loose-limbed vocal performance are perhaps the album's true highlight.

This album is like three mad and electrifying musical solos somehow blending into one perfect composition; an intense musical jam session that doesn't let up until the we reach the last few tracks wherein a slight normality resumes and beautiful harmonies burst through the wall of sound.

White Denim mash up so much influence, inspiration, genres and styles in "Fits' that it sounds like you've experienced a lifetimes worth of work by the time the album reaches its 30 odd minute conclusion. Such is the pace and intensity of the album (particularly during the early songs) that the brilliance of this record may not sink in upon the first listen, but give it a few more play throughs and everything begins to make sense; the wild unexpected twists of "Radio Milk How Can You Stand It", the seductive groove of "Sex Prayer" (which could easily pass off as a Doors backing track) and the light and gorgeous "Regina Holding Hands" are just some of the albums highlights.

I have no idea what the band are singing about on "Fits", it sometimes breaks down into a few yelps and wails and there's even a bit of spanish in there, but when it sounds this good, who cares? Singer James Patrelli uses his vocals as just another instrument; just another texture in the magnificent White Denim sound.

I broadly agree with the previous reviewer. This is a sometimes bewildering mixture of styles which when it gets it right is very good but some of it jars. Still, you can't push boundaries without treading on a few toes. Worth buying, and it will probably grow on me.

By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 July 2009
Format: Audio CD
The Texas trio White Denim have a fortunate problem on "Fits" namely a massive pool of ideas upon which they draw to throw everything into this album plus the kitchen sink. When things work it is truly great stuff and potentially this is one of the finest US bands emerging from a very strong crop of contenders. Austin Texas seems to be churning them out a mile a minute and here in the UK we can only turn slightly green with envy at the quality and and verve of American garage bands

The problem I have with this album is that some parts of it are easier to admire than love. True some of the songs are absolute standouts -

* "Radio Milk how can you stand it" has the best driving guitar licks this side of a Comets on Fire album. You can't really call it boogie but it has that quality that Cream used to infuse into their music

* "Mirrored and Reserve" - This resonates with the sounds of the great American psychedelic rock band Quicksilver Messenger Service. If the Doors were just starting up (and Jim Morrison wasn't pretending to be an Indian Shaman and spending all his time with bonkers women who thought they were white witches) this is the type of music they would be creating. Its brilliant stuff with a fantastic driving rhythm overlaying a complex song and is probably the albums highlight.

* "Paint yourself" - alternatively is jazzy and light and no bad thing either. It adds colour and shade to the album and is the nearest thing the band has produced that could be described as "pop". It could be a single is very radio friendly

* "I start to run" - another highlight. Almost a stax beat kicks off the song and I am reminded of George Clinton and Funkadelic.
