Austin’s White Denim latest album Stiff was released in 2016, three years after the critical and commercial breakout of Corsicana Lemonade, which landed the band bookings with Kimmel (from SXSW), Austin City Limits, Letterman, Conan, and Jools Holland, raves from Rolling Stone, SPIN, WSJ, Gorilla vs. Bear + more, and headlining slots at their biggest venues to date by far.
Turns out they were just getting warmed up. For Stiff, White Denim enlisted producer Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, Laura Marling), the first time the band has worked with an outside producer for an entire album.
The album was recorded completely live to 16-track tape with few overdubs, and the resulting 9 adrenaline-fueled tracks signal a return to White Denim’s frenetic rock band roots.
