White Denim has made use of the new business side of music, that is, they’ve produced an album (Last Day of Summer) that is entirely for free (though donations are accepted) and chock full of good songs in support of their upcoming full length. The clarity and melody of their song craft, especially on this number “New Coat”, the album ender, is exemplary of a great summery album. The melody comes off a lot like McCartney’s early solo work (McCartney, Ram) but with no lyrical fallout, just a great pop song. Head on over to Art of the Mixtape if you want to download the song.
