Performance was mainly recorded over eight weeks at White Denim's new downtown Austin, TX studio, Radio Milk. Two new players were key in what James Petralli describes as "a super-collaborative record:" keyboardist Michael Hunter, a "young, humble genius with endless potential" and Conrad Choucroun, a "ridiculously solid" drummer with a long stint with NRBQ on his resume. It makes sense that White Denim would develop a kinship with a player from their circle. In many ways, they are a continuation of that sort of group. One that will never stop pushing and taking every opportunity to shine a light on and exemplify what is truly good about rock & roll music. 

Categorically speaking, 
White Denim is still impossible to narrowly pin down. There's the glam-rock strut of "Magazin" and "It Might Get Dark," the dueling guitars on the low-slung blues prog of "Moves On", and the sideways jazz of "Sky Beaming." There are plenty of pleasingly unexpected musical moments on the title track and the easy-rolling closer "Good News," along with some seriously distorted guitar. In many ways, White Denim is the flashing light in a dark and crowded tunnel of showbiz glop. Quietly and fiercely finding themselves - and us - through their work.
