[new album] White Denim - Fits & Exposion

White Denim's US Debut

Today is the day - White Denim's music finally hits US shelves via Downtown Music. Fits, which has been raved about overseas and has caused quite a buzz around the band, has made its way across the Atlantic to American listeners. I'm hoping that the power of Downtown can give WD the exposure they deserve.

This isn't the first attempt that White Denim has tried to tap into the US mainstream. Over a year ago in an unfortunate business venture with Transmission, the major US release of Exposion was thwarted; however, now you can finally get your hands on a physical copy thanks to this new record deal.

If you buy the band's fabulous LP Fits, you'll also receive a bonus disc with White Denim's debut record Exposion.

If you're a long-time reader, you'll recall that Exposion ranked 2nd in the Top 13 Albums of 2008. You also might remember that Fits was 2nd in the Midterm Report for 2009. These albums are absolute stunners by themselves, so to receive them together as a packaged deal might possibly be the best deal of 2009. Grab yourself a copy and you'll see what all the hype is about.
