White Denim’s high-energy garage/indie hybrid has always been built on loops developed in extensive jams. Stiff pushes this even further, in fact, making the songs looser than ever before. There’s bluesy riffing, weird little rockabilly breakdowns and a general experimental motivation to include whatever sounds good.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 3rd January 2018
Stiff opens with "Had 2 Know (Personal"), which immediately resonates. "Ha Ha Ha Ha (Yeah)" charges even harder. "Holda You (I'm Psycho") continues the resurrected urgency of the band's sound: nervous at time, but knowing full well what it wants to deliver. It's got a great sound and I enjoyed the entire album, but it's not alternative. I think if you liked rock in the 1970's this album is going to resonate with you pretty well. All in all, this album clips by in no time. Sure, Stiff is short and sweet, but you'll want to play this again.
