In his 1942 essay The Myth of Sisyphus, Camus wrote that “All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.” 15 years later Richard Wayne Penniman wrote “Wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom”, an undeniably powerful vocalization that on any given Wednesday in any given situation, civilized or otherwise, is still fully capable of setting somebody’s stuff aflame. Over ten years and seven long players into their career, White Denim are still in the relentless pursuit of a thread - in other words, a wick.
The Austin,Texas band have carefully and continuously studied the greatest records ever made, but they write songs just dumb enough to drink, dance, and fight to. Theirs is a music that aims for the whole body, while equally satisfying the mind. While it has morphed, expanded, and even burst apart, White Denim’s sincere and human drive and ability to spark true rock & roll exhilaration have been unerring constants of the band’s 10-year existence.
“White Denim are one of the best live bands you will ever see if you live to be a million. That’s not excitable hyperbole, merely a bald statement of undeniable fact...” — Time Out
“The last great rock & roll band!” — The Guardian
Amazing new album Performance in stores on August 24.
Son Of Stan
Hailing from Fort Worth, TX, Son of Stan is the unique solo vehicle of Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist & producer Jordan Richardson, former drummer of Ben Harper, Ringo Starr, and White Denim. March of 2019 saw the release of Diamond Cuts, the third album in an already wildly unique Son of Stan catalog. Differing from previous solo releases, Diamond Cuts finds Richardson joined in studio and on tour with his newly formed Boat Club Rd. Band, consisting of some of the most talented players from the Lone Star State. The new material is a marriage of Richardson’s signature wry lyricism and psychedelic hooks with a larger and louder groove and sound, reminiscent of vintage early 80‘s pop-rock. This newly realized live energy created from Son of Stan & the Boat Club Rd. Band boasts an irresistibly hook-filled sound that’s simultaneously danceable, yet big and loud enough to reach the nose bleed seats of any minor league hockey arena. Catch the band all of 2019 out on the road, slinging summer feelings wrapped in loud hooks and served with stoner grins.
