White Denim at Firefly Music Festival 2014

By Will Oliver, July 7th 2014

Foo Fighters set went a bit over the scheduled time, so I was only able to catch a bit of White Denim’s set immediately after. I was happy I made it over at all, as the Austin band are not to be missed live (as I learned at Bonnaroo 2012)

They’re a force of jammy psych-rock with plenty of soul and grooves to keep you going all through the night. They had a killer light show at task as well. I just wish I had a bit more time to take it all in, but I can’t possibly complain. Read the rest of this entry »

White Denim @ Bonnaroo (June 7, 2012)

By Will Oliver, June 12th 2012

Going into Bonnaroo, there was no chance of me not catching White Denim. Their reputation for a smashing live band preceded them, and I knew they were ones not to miss. Although not super familiar with all of their records, what I do have is stellar. So I had a good feeling they were going to be great live. They weren’t. They were exceptional.

It was a non-stop rocking set that was a great combination of garage rock, psychedelic, blues, punk, with a jam band mindset. The band tore through the set without ever really taking a step back to breathe, and it was all the more epic for it. I was thoroughly impressed with their stamina, and their ability to just bring the tent down.

Everyone in attendance was raving about White Denim. My advice to you is go see them the next time they stop in to a town near you.

White Denim – Anvil Everything

By Will Oliver, March 29th 2011

White Denim keep on impressing me. The latest taste of new album D came in the form of “Anvil Everything”, another psych rock journey down their mind. It’s a track that is very 60′s psych, sounding very Beatles-esque at some points. I even hear a bit of Radiohead deep within “Anvil Everything”‘s DNA. It’s got a lot going for it.

From what we’ve heard from White Denim, it seem as though they’ve stepped up their game heavily for D. If the rest of the album keeps the same quality, D is going to be unstoppable.

The band also put together a mixtape featuring some of their favorite jams. You can stream that below or download it here, via GVB.

[new] White Denim – Drug

By Will Oliver, March 3rd 2011 — with 1 comment

I’ve been an on and off fan of White Denim for quite some time. I won’t front. I’m not their biggest fan, and I don’t know their catalog by heart. Not even close. However, whatever I do hear from them, I’ve enjoyed immensely. They’re another one of those bands that I’ve been meaning to listen to more.

They just released a new song called “Drug” that will be on their new album D (set for release May 24th via Downtown). I’m blown away by how great this song is. I feel like White Denim have taken their game to an entirely different level. This song is pure magic. It may just be on that hot new drug. I think it’s called Charlie Sheen?

I’ve the rest of D is this magical, then we are in for a real treat folks. Grab “Drugs

This year was my first trip to Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival, and I certainly hope it won’t be my last. The experience was great, I had a great time with good friends, met some great people, and saw some great bands play. For those of you who have never been, it’s basically an Easy Coast version of Bonnaroo. You camp out over four days and take in lots of music across a bunch of huge fields. Although its a rather large scale festival, it has some intimate aspects to it that make it feel accessible in ways.

The highlight of the fest came in many shapes and forms, from the reunited Outkast, to the mega-rock sets from Arctic Monkeys, Weezer, and Foo Fighters. Local Natives proved that they are on their way up with a huge performance, and tUnE-yArDs still have me reeling with how great they were.

Lollapalooza Anounces 2014 Lineup

By Will Oliver, March 27th 2014

Lollapalooza

The 2014 Lollapalooza lineup was announced yesterday, and it seems to be garnering some mixed reactions. Headlining the fest are Outkast (duh), Eminem, Kings Of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Lorde, The Avett Brothers and Foster The People. I can understand the disappointment. While it’s (of course) great to see Arctic Monkeys there, the rest of the list is pretty subpar.

From there, here are some artists listed that caught my eye: Interpol, Cut Copy, Portugal. The Man, Nas, Childish Gambino, Broken Bells, Spoon, Young The Giant, Lykke Li, Chance The Rapper, Phantogram, Grouplove, CHVRCHES, Chromeo, Darkside, The 1975, Jenny Lewis, Phosphorescent, The Temper Trap, Bombay Bicycle Club, White Denim, Typhoon, Warpaint, Kate Nash, Kodaline, Lucius, Blood Orange, Jagwar Ma, Parquet Courts, Temples, NoNoNo, Papa, The Districts, Ratking, The So So Glos,

While the headliners aren’t all that spectacular, the other acts playing the festival are solid. So basically the day section of Lollapalooza may be where the real action is.

Best Songs Of 2013

Best Songs Of 2013

Thanks to Camilo Bejarano for the artwork as usual

This year I pushed the limit on publishing my best songs list with a day to spare. I think that patience has all but been lost with list making these days, but time is something I can never get enough of. I need as much time as possible to sort through the wide plethora of music that graced my ears this year.

With albums it’s tough to honor all the stuff you loved as eventually a few will get pushed out of the fold. But with a best songs list, you have more of a chance to highlight a well rounded collection of music that really defined your year. There’s a wide collection of songs here that I’m really proud to share because it’s a pretty wide collection of songs that I hope is all balanced as I thought it was. I try and keep an open mind and embrace anything that sounds good to me. I think this year was a good year for music, but also a good one to be a music listener, which is truly exciting.

You can find my list below, as well as a spotify link right here, and a stream that’s shared at the very tail end of the post.
