Wet Denim 

Wet Denim (independent)

The Halifax four-piece dropped two wet demos onto Bandcamp way back in the summer of 2012---the lilting, key-driven “Demagnetize” and head-bopper “Last Night,” a straight fucking jam with layers of verse vocal lines leading into a perfect pop chorus. Both appear on this awaited/anticipated full-length alongside eight other songs skillfully laced with keyboard lines, riffs and terrific harmonies. A veritable supergroup comprised of Eleanor King, Leigh Dotey, Victoria Parker and Jess Lewis, last week’s Khyber release show revealed a fiercer approach than this lo-fi recording suggests, but the songs---especially “Leisure,” “Surf Song” and “Truth Bombs”---in any form are undeniable in their hookiness, otherness.
