Blips: Two Under The Radar Bands

Zion Godchaux oozes stage presence, a characteristic that works well in a duo. Russ Randolph, on the other hand, was content to sit back and let his sequencer do the talking. Overall, I had a blast seeing these guys play a style of jamtronica that never got boring. It also didn’t hurt that Boombox’s audience at the Tap Room was 75% female. You don’t see that at many jam band shows. Boombox returns to NYC on June 6 for their first Rocks Off cruise. – Scott Bernstein

White Denim


Website / MySpace

You know those bands that open for others band? The ones you generally end up missing to grab a few more drinks at the bar or because you’ve never heard of the band and don’t want to be bothered? Well White Denim is currently one of those bands. The Austin trio will spend the next month or so on the road holding down the opening slot for Tapes ‘N Tapes, but believe me it’s worth going in a little earlier to check these guys out. The band combines the angular jams of Television, with raw visceral punk vocals and a dash of psychedelic blues rock to produce a sound that packs quite a punch – and is currently impressing the shit out of me. These guys only have an EP to their name at the moment, but a full length is on its way this June. In a few short months when everyone is talking about White Denim you can say you saw them when. – Jeffrey Greenblatt
