More explorations in pop by these leftfield Texans. This is WD's third album, which by all accounts is one of their most eclectic, yet strangely accessible records in their canon. It has a touch of many a classic American rock album, or mebbe I should say that songs on this LP are very much rooted in classic songwriting bands (Beach Boys, The Byrds) with a verve all of their own. It's a home studio recording but it has a really lush production, and is the last WD album that was recorded at Josh Block's (White Denim tub thumper and occasional male prostitute) home studio. They recorded this album in one month, and it was meant to be the last album, then White Denim's members were all meant to have a bit of a rest up and mebbe get regular day jobs...but this album was so well received by fans and tastemakers alike that its relative success prolonged the band and got them where they are a service station just outside Droitwich (probably). Last a varied and subtle listen, that as mentioned earlier it reminds me of The Beach Boys (especially on tracks like the chiming, pushing “Home Together”) and the soulful overbearing pomposity of “If You're Changing” which is a rather nice blues song. It has some jazzier moments (such as the sax-led 'Light Light Light') which has a loose feel that is quite interesting. This LP is a record that is full of variety and charm and quality song writing. Not fucking bad.
