D by White Denim

The fourth official record from White Denim “D” is out- this four-piece band based in Austin, Texas just released a full length album with Downtown Records. Check it out if you like a layered, deep sound and artists that can master and expertly mix eclectic influences: garage and progressive rock, psychedelic music, jazz, blues and even a sprinkle of country music. They also do great live shows so don’t miss them; they’re on tour in the US now and will be doing festivals in the UK from late August.

Two previous albums “Cuts across the land” and “Neptune” and wide supporting experience …

Let the Catwalk rule

Who has never dreamt of showing off on the catwalk,  just for once in his life? Sure, this band will grow (cos they barely have the age to drink in the States) and have the success they deserve.

This cool duo was born and raised in Los Angeles, and actually is one of the thousand indie rock bands which …
