White Denim On BBC, Kicking Off European Tour

White Denim certainly don't need any hype from me - the British and European press are doing a pretty good job piling on the praise, if the review snippets on the Full Time Hobby (Hold Steady, Viva Voce) site are any measure, but I'll still wholeheartedly congratulate the local boys done good. According to this profile from Austin it-bookers Transmission Entertainment, White Denim's first proper US LP release, titled Exposion, should be out by the end of July 2008 (and it says a second album's worth of material has already been recorded!), just after they get back from this European jaunt, at which time they plan to enslave the human race and make every living man, woman, and child a dancing disciple of their junk/punk/funk. Their overseas excursion began yesterday with the following BBC set and an instore in London, and will see them hit several festivals (wtf - how long has there been a Mighty Boosh Festival???) including the storied Glastonbury Festival. Thanks to DimeADozen user paul_b35_uk, who shares an absolute ton of BBC 6 sets on Dime, for getting this set out so quickly, and to bakrsdzn for the pic. Also be sure you've downloaded White Denim's free EP here.

This band is so overrated!! I've live in Austin and saw them probably three different times during SXSW to give them a fair chance and I just don't get it.

I saw them twice at SXSW, and if you weren't into it, I certainly didn't see you in the crowds of people who did get it
