REC'D MP3: White Denim - "No Real Reason"


Austin-based experimental four-piece White Denim haven’t quit with the awesome material this year – first a great record, D, now a great EP, Takes Place in Your Work Space. Highlight “No Real Reason” is a fabulous five-and-a-half minute epic that starts off slow and ponderous, complete with hazy, lovelorn lyrics, and winds into explosive territory as wailing guitars seamlessly intertwine and impossible drums roll like thunder into a stunning, gigantic desert sunset of a sound. It shows off both the band’s incredible technical talent and their unique interpretation of pop songwriting without becoming indulgent – even those crazy guitar solos toward the end feel necessary rather than showboating.
