Featured Artist: White Denim

From zelmanstudios.com.

It’s often difficult to explain the sound of a fusion band such as Texas-based foursome White Denim, but choosing just one descriptor doesn’t do them justice. Listen to any of their five studio recordings (plus five other EPs) from the past half-decade and you’ll hear elements of jam band funk, raw garage rock, psychedelic prog, and a hint of blues; eventually you have a soup of adjectives and no clear definition. Even the big-name magazines can’t seem to agree: Rolling Stone said White Denim were “like a jam band that refuses to be boring” while Q mag called album, D, “another joyous rampage through rock’s dusty attic.”

But in this case it isn’t a detriment. It’s not that the group can’t define themselves; instead, each musician brings his own expertise into the mix for a smooth blend of sound. For instance, take the song “Drug” (a single from D) during which singer/guitarist James Petralli’s soft, droney vocals contrast drummer Joshua Block’s cymbal-heavy, hard-and-fast backbeat. A little delay on guitarist Austin Jenkin’s solo leads the song down a more down-to-earth jammy path, while Steven Terebecki’s playfully cascading basslines keep the energy up. Check out the video for “Drug” below.

Kicking off their summer tour to promote their next album (currently in the works with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy in the producer’s chair), White Denim will be at the Jam on Friday, June 7, performing a late-night set.
