White Denim - 'Corsicana Lemonade'

Album Info

  • Release Date: October 29, 2013
  • Label: Downtown Records
8 / 10 A brainier and more refined take on these Austin rockers’ Unknown Mortal Orchestra-meets-Thin Lizzy sound, White Denim’s sixth album should, by rights, see them do for psych rock what The Black Keys did for blues rock. Tracks such as ‘New Blue Feeling’ give the songwriting a classic feel, the likes of ‘Come Back’ add funk to the mix (and fall on the correct side of the invisible barrier between Free and Lenny Kravitz), and throughout the album there are squealing fuzz guitar solos that verge on free jazz. The biggest star is, perhaps, the production, built for chunky headphones and FM radios. You’ll find yourself hankering for a pair of flares after listening – in white denim, of course.
