Obits Bed & Bugs

It’s not easy being green, but after dozens of all-day jam sessions and assistance from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, White Denim have rediscovered the magic rushing through their guitar amps. Tweedy’s involvement peaks through the track in its starting seconds of “Pretty Green”, resembling rock jaunts similar to Wilco’s Summerteeth. The band stays true to their guitar dominance as their guitar strings ring from gentle pacing to aggressive downstrokes.

The band’s fifth album, Corsicana Lemonade, is out October 29th via Downtown Records —Sam Willett
