The Austin group White Denim is a band that I have given up trying to categorize. At any one time you can hear elements of punk, jazz, psych, garage, etc in their songs. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to their recording style and I imagine they just bang around on their instruments until songs start to come out. Even though its not in my nature, I am trying to keep my brain from trying to figure them out. Now, I just sit back and enjoy the mess.
This is the video for “Drug” off of the album D. Don’t ask me what is happening. I have no idea, but for some reason it makes me uncomfortable and that’s the part I think i like.
