[White Denim]
"Hey! Say What! What?! I wanna do it!"

You may already know about the goofy kids above. These boys have stirred up quite a bit of excitement over the past few months, and I kick myself knowing I'm one that's yet to chatter about White Denim, especially since they're local. Yes, yes - these guys hail from Austin, or as they like to call, "Daustin." That alone really shows this group's demeanor. They're just a rambunctious set of kiddos and reflect this on what they do by ravaging their tunage with said rambunctiousness. It's loud, vigorous, and anything but static - it's downright ruckus music. February might place my post late, but there's some appropriateness in it. This month officially marks them as two years old - happy birthday! Hard to believe they've only played together for that short a span; these guys have the dynamics of a band that's played together for years. At the end of it all, these guys' synergy can probably be attributed to the fact that, in essence, White Denim is just three friends having a hell of a time. They're SXSW bound - be sure to catch whatever the hell they do...

man, I'm really glad their getting the attention they deserve. I remember seeing them open up for Oh No! Oh My! a couple months before FFF Fest and they seemed sort of borderline bitter, at least the singer, at their lack of sucess because they've been trying for so long.
