White Denim

8 p.m. Saturday, April 7. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

White Denim's transformation from Nuggets-fueled retrophilia to druggy art rock hasn't been seamless. The band's 2011 release, D, messes with noisy prog, Talking-Heads-skewed Afro-beat and detached psych-rock, sounding just arch enough to befuddle fans and just tuneful enough to hold college radio's interest. Its latest video single, "Drug," has full '60s one-hit wonderment, with a creamy refrain and gnarled-up Amboy Dukes guitars headed straight for the center of your mind. To say it's a new direction would be premature, as there's little foretelling what White Denim will do next.
