Editors, White Denim (& Syd Arthur)

Well, my weekend turned out to be somewhat of a musical extravaganza. First up was a trip down to Leeds for my second helping of Editors this year and as they were at their usual dynamic-tour-de-force best, it made the journey well worthwhile. Here is a good example of how they continue to up their game each time I see them.

Sunday night was a shorter journey through to Glasgow for an evening with White Denim. I would like to point out that I would happily go to the ends of the earth for these guys. I kid you not. They are as good a live band as I’ve ever seen and last night’s affair can be summed up in two words. EXCESSIVELY AWESOME!

But you don’t have to take my word for it. You can try out their unique sound thanks to two top quality KCRW radio station sessions here and here. N.B. Please note that these come with a health warning and should be approached with caution!

p.s. White Denim also brought Syd Arthur (I reviewed them in July last year) with them as their support band and I am delighted to say that they were way better live than I had expected. You can check out a good example of them here.

p.p.s. As I am an absolute glutton for punishment, I will be attending another Editors gig on Tuesday. This time in Glasgow, at The Barras. Roll on Tuesday night!
