Austin's animated rock group White Denim have released a B-side EP Pretty Green
today that accompanies their latest album Corsicana Lemonade
. Corsicana Lemonade
is the sixth studio album to come from these southern gentlemen and has received positive critical acclaim, as the album shows yet another sporadic side of the band.
The four tracks on Pretty Green
remix a couple of the songs from CL
, including the popular single "Pretty Green." The EP's "Pretty Green Mash" features the Bottom Dollar String Band, another Texan group, and replaces electric guitar strands with banjo strings, resulting in an increased tempo and country-living charm. "Under Mi Pretty Green" is a lo-fi, beachy tune that slightly resembles the sounds of Sublime, making it a nice alternative to the usual roughness of their songs. Contrastingly, the LP's closer "A Place To Start" is actually a little bit softer than the EP's "Looking For A Place To Start." While the LP's track features smooth vocals from James Petralli, on the B-side EP, reverb is added as well as funky water notes with producer Jeff Tweedy of Wilco (who also produced the album's "Pretty Green").
