Great intro to White Denim,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Corsicana Lemonade (MP3 Download)
A friend of mine went to see WD in Brighton and remarked on facebook how good they were so I thought I'd check them out. I listened to a few snippets of Corsicana Lemonade and they piqued my interest enough to download the full album. I'm very glad I did. Having done so I've voraciously sought any other music by the band, so they're other 4 albums. This is the best entry point as the most accessible piece they've done, At Night in Dreams kicks off the proceedings with a bang of riffing and melody which is sustained brilliantly throughout. What I love about WD is their absolute ability to construct unusual yet melodic songs, the sheer intricacy and the way they meld styles. It is breath taking, more so on 'D' and 'Workout Holiday' (albeit the latter is raw) but certainly in evidence here. Normally I find guitar music a little one dimensional and tired, and moreover totally predicatable, this is not the case with this band. Buy this, then buy the rest!
